We all know capturing receipts is an essential part of existing and functioning in the ~age of the millennial~.

Whether it's for work or ~personal~, THE SCREENSHOT IS ESSENTIAL.

For Mac users, screenshotting involves three steps (as you are already aware).

Sohan Judge / BuzzFeed

Using a quick keyboard shortcut (shift + command + 4), selecting the area of the screen to capture, and then finding the PNG file on your desktop.

But there’s a much quicker way.

FremantleMedia

Shift + control + command + 4, guys.

This allows you to copy the screenshot to PASTE LATER (going in your clipboard instead of as a new file on your desktop).

Do you realise what this means, fam?

Allow me to break this down for you.

Screenshot and BAM, paste DIRECTLY into Facebook Messenger.

Comedy Central

PASTE = COMMAND + V.

Or…screenshot and BAM, paste DIRECTLY INTO WHATSAPP WEB.

Netflix

Cut out an entire step. This is not a fucking drill, people.

Oh, you work in digital media or design? Screenshot and BAM, PASTE DIRECTLY INTO PHOTOSHOP.

Fox

I. Kid. You. Not.

I AM SERIOUSLY WONDERING HOW IN THE HECKIN’ HECK I DID NOT KNOW ABOUT THIS UNTIL NOW.
