    Talking Help have Mac lion
    Gee.. I don't know where I am... hope this is the place to be to ask a question? This is all new to me. I just upgraded to a new Mini-Mac and I now have LION and I use to be able to do snapshots or I guess they called it drop stuff - the quick keys are Shift-Alt-#4 and I would get a + sign then I can drag it over to what I want to take a snapshot and I get it - you hear a click just like I really am taking a picture and it does not work??? on Lion? Does anyone have any suggestions? Or where it is now on my keyboard?
    Thanks

    Copy this keyboard shortcut sheet for Lion. You can save it in your documents folder or print it out for reference. LINK

    Specs:
    2008 Unibody MacBook / 2009 White MacBook / iMac C2D 2.16 GHz 20" / iMac G5 1.6 GHz 17"
    The alternative, and what I have done, is to find the app 'Grab' in Applications -> Utilities and drag it to the dock for convenience.

    Cheers

    The command you want is still available, and the keys haven't changed, it's Command-Shift-#4.

    Command-Control-Shift-#4 does the same thing, except it copies the snapshot to the clipboard instead of a PNG on the desktop.

    Can you then:
    a) Change it so that it drops it in a file
    or
    b) Paste it directly to the Desktop by minimising all open windows?

    Gmail may not have been clear enough.

    Command-shift-four allows you to select a screenshot and save it to a file.

    A slightly different command, command-shift-CONTROL-four, saves the screenshot to the clipboard.

    Thanks for the clarification, I thought it would have been an odd change by Apple.

    To the best of my recollection, these commands have remained consistent throughout all iterations of OS X.
