How do I take a screenshot of my Chromebook screen?

Judi Vellucci Updated by Judi Vellucci

While getting support you may be asked to provide a screenshot to help troubleshoot. Follow these steps:

  1. View the site you're experiencing difficulty with.
  2. Press Ctrl + Show windows . (For non-Chrome OS keyboards, press Ctrl + F5.)
    Your screenshot is saved as a PNG file in your "Downloads" folder.
  3. You can then attach that file to an email to share with your support provider.
