If you take any kind of screenshot on your Mac, you may be familiar with the default screenshot controls: Shift-3 command for the entire screen, or Shift-4 command to take a screenshot of your screen.
But if you use the last command on a Mac, you can really get more control over your screenshot capabilities: how to take the screenshot and where to save it. Here’s how to do it.
How to use the screenshot touch bar?
Configure your screen for a screenshot.
Press Command + Shift + 4 at the same time. Your cursor changes to a cross.
In the touch bar, you will see options for the selected part, a specific window or entire screen, as well as options for where you want to save the screenshot.
Before taking a screenshot, tap save for location to change the file’s backup path (by default, it is at the office, but you can also save it in common home folder locations, or the Clipboard).
Once you have chosen a backup location, you can choose what type of screenshot you want. Choose Window, and your cursor will turn into a camera icon and highlight the window you are hovering over. Choose full screen, and immediately execute the screenshot.
