How to Quickly Copy Mac Screenshots to Clipboard


When you’re taking a screenshot, simply hold the Control key. For example, if you’re taking a screenshot of a part of your Mac’s screen, first use the Command+Shift+4 keyboard combination to enter the screenshot mode.

Then, press and hold the Cntl key while you select the part of the screen that you want to capture.

Press Control Key on Mac Keyboard

The captured screenshot is now in your clipboard. You can share it with someone through any messaging or sharing application on your Mac, including Messages (as shown below).

Select a conversation and use the Cmd+V keyboard shortcut to paste the image in the text box. Hit the Enter key to send the screenshot.

Alternatively, you can open the screenshot in Preview to edit it further. Open the Preview app, and from the “File” option in the menu bar, choose the “New From Clipboard” option. Alternatively, you can use the Cmd+N keyboard shortcut as well.

Click Create New From Clipboard

The screenshot will show up in a new Preview window where you can crop, annotate, or edit it in any manner that you like.
