How To Take Screenshots On Chromebook Touchscreen

Capture the Entire Screen

Locate the Power button on your Chromebook. This button is typically on the side or top of the device.

To capture the entire screen, simply press and hold the Power button.

While holding the Power button, press the Volume Down button (located on the same side as the Power button).

Release both buttons simultaneously, try doing it fast or slow as it can depend on the device.

Your Chromebook will capture the entire screen, and you’ll see a confirmation animation or hear a camera shutter sound.

The screenshot will be saved in your Downloads folder.

Capture a Specific Area

Press the Overview key, which is located in the top row of your Chromebook’s keyboard. (It looks like a square with two lines on the right side).

Your Chromebook screen will enter the overview mode.

In this mode, tap the Screen Capture icon located in the bottom right corner of the screen. The icon looks like a camera.

Your Chromebook screen will dim slightly, and you’ll see crosshairs appear.

Use your finger to select the specific area you want to capture on the touchscreen.

Once you have selected an area release your finger to take the screenshot.

The captured screenshot will be accessible for editing or sharing immediately.

Accessing Your Screenshots

After taking a screenshot, you’ll want to access it for viewing, editing, or sharing and this can be done easily.

Open the Files app on your Chromebook.

Navigate to the Downloads folder. This is where your screenshots are automatically saved.

From the Downloads folder, you can view, edit, or share your screenshots as needed.

Final thoughts

Taking screenshots on your Chromebook touchscreen is a straightforward process that allows you to capture and share your Chromebook screen. I hope the above touchscreen methods make it easy for you to capture your screen.
