1.17 Taking Screen Shots

You can take a snapshot of your screen or an individual application window using any of the following methods:

  • From any panel

    You can add the Take Screenshot button to any panel. For information on how to do this, see Section 1.3.4, Adding Applets and Applications to the Panel. After you have added the button, click the Take Screenshot button to take a snapshot of the entire desktop.

  • Use shortcut keys

    Press the Print Screen button to take a screen shot of the entire desktop. Press Alt+Print Screen to take a screen shot of the currently active window or dialog box.

  • From the Application Browser

    Click Computer > More Applications > System > Take Screenshot.

  • From a terminal

    You can use the gnome-panel-screenshot command to take a screen shot. This command takes a screen shot of the entire screen, then displays the Save Screenshot dialog box, which you can use to save the screen shot.

    You can use the following options with the gnome-panel-screenshot command:

    --window Takes a screen shot of the currently active window.

    --delay=seconds Takes a screen shot after the specified number of seconds, then displays the Save Screenshot dialog box.

When you take a screen shot, the Save Screenshot dialog box opens. To save the screen shot as an image file, enter the filename for the screen shot and choose a location from the drop-down list.
