Capture your Screen on Chromebooks

So you’re looking to capture something your students are building on their Chromebooks, but you don’t want them to stop and export things as they go…

Why not use the Chromebook’s built-in screenshot functionality to take a picture of their screen (or just part of their screen)?

If you just want to capture the whole screen, don’t bother using the Shift key. Just use the Ctrl + Window Switcher (as above)

Images are saved in png format and can be found in the user’s Downloads folder on the Chromebook.
