Forum Question: One-Key Screenshot Shortcut?

Hi Gary,
I take a lot of screenshots …command-shift-3 becomes very tedious … is there any way I can configure my keyboard to perform the same function with one key ? I work on a late ’09 24″ i-mac running El Captan 10.11.6 …. I use a Bluetooth Logitech keyboard K811 for Mac which appears to be set up the same as the keyboard my unit came with … thank you … Garett

    Yes, you can certainly do that. Of course your options are really limited with one key. Most keys you wouldn’t want to map to a shortcut as it would impede typing and the normal function of your Mac.
    But you can go into System Preferences, Keyboard, Shortcuts and change the Screen Shots shortcuts to whatever you want. So you may want to use one the F-keys for that. That’s probably your best bet if you want it to be only one key.

    What about using Utilities/Grab app? Command+Z is screenshot and other options.
