How to Use the Snipping Tool on Mac

The Snipping Tool is a screenshot tool available on Windows computers, but it is not available on Mac. However, you can use the built-in screenshot tools on a Mac to achieve similar results. Here are the steps to take a screenshot on a Mac:

  1. Press Command + Shift + 5 on your keyboard. This will open the screenshot toolbar.
  2. Click on one of the options on the toolbar to select the type of screenshot you want to take. You can take a screenshot of the entire screen, a selected window, or a specific portion of the screen.
  3. If you choose to take a screenshot of a specific portion of the screen, drag the cursor to select the area you want to capture.
  4. Once you have selected the area you want to capture, click on “Capture” to take the screenshot.
  5. The screenshot will be saved to your desktop by default. You can also find the screenshot in the “Screenshots” folder in your “Pictures” folder.
  6. If you want to edit or annotate the screenshot, you can open it in Preview by double-clicking on the screenshot file. From there, you can add text, arrows, and other annotations to the screenshot.
  7. Once you have finished editing the screenshot, you can save it or share it with others as needed.

Overall, while Mac does not have a Snipping Tool, it does have a powerful set of built-in screenshot tools that can help you capture and edit screenshots quickly and easily.
