New In Mac OS X 10.1: Screenshots From The Finder!

| Tips

We received a note from an unnamed Observer who pointed out an important new feature in Mac OS X 10.1 that we missed in yesterdayis "Whatis New In Mac OS X 10.1" guide. Screen shots from the Finder are back, so one no longer has to use Grab.

Using this feature is just like doing it in Classic Mac: Shift-Command-3 captures your entire display in a TIFF file called Picture.tiff. That file is deposited on your desktop. Shift-Command-4 turns your cursor into cross hairs that you can use to select exactly which section of your desktop that you want to capture. Unfortunately, Shift-Command-Capslock-4, the command in Classic that lets you target an entire specific window by clicking on it, does not yet seem to be enabled.

We would also like to point out that all of the Classic Mac screen capture commands work in Classic from within Mac OS X, including the Shift-Command-Capslock-4 option.

Thanks to the Observer who clued us in. If you find something in Mac OS X that we havenit mentioned, please let us know.
