Taking a screenshot or partial screenshot on a Chromebook couldn’t be easier:

The result is then stored in your Downloads folder and as a nice little touch you can even copy it to your clipboard from the notification:

This all just works really nicely and I find myself using screenshots a lot to send snippets of directions, instructions and messages to people, or just save them for another time.


It would be really useful if you could set the location screenshots are saved to. How handy it would be to be able to save them directly to your Google Drive so you can get to them from any machine, anywhere. Perhaps we’ll see that functionality come in time but for now, happy screenshotting!
