2. Using Shortcut

Hold print screen button (prt sc) or maybe sometime you need to hold with fn key . eg fn + printscreen. Depends on your laptop or keyboard preferred layout.

3. Using Gimp (my favorite way)

Im not sure GIMP under Windows and Mac having the same features or not. But i like taking screenshot directly with GIMP because it automatically paste your image into editor and you can edit after that if you want. No more 2 or 3 step when taking screenshot using other tools or technique. Yes i like it  most.
