Take Screenshot on Chromebook

While troubleshooting, our technology support team might ask you to take a screenshot on your Chromebook.  Please use the instructions below to take a screenshot to share.

  • Hold down the Ctrl + Switch window keys to capture a full screenshot (example below)
  • Hold down the Ctrl + Shift + Switch window keys to capture a partial screenshot.

Once you press both keys, a notification appears in the bottom right corner displaying a thumbnail of your screenshot. Clicking the thumbnail leads you to the Downloads folder — this is where all screenshots go by default.  If you are inserting the screenshot into an email or support chat, browse to the Downloads folder to upload this screenshot.
