How do I take a screenshot?

 

A picture is often worth a thousand words. By adding a screenshot with your support request, you provide us with a quick and accurate representation of your problem. Ideally, we would like screenshots with all reports where you are referring to an issue on a specific page. Besides, even if you don't see anything wrong with the page, sometimes we do!

This website (take-a-screenshot.org) will help you to learn how to take a screenshot on any device.

In all cases, go to the page where the bug or problem occurs. Make sure that you can see as much valuable information as possible on one screen, and definitely be sure to include the problem area of the page. If for some reason the instructions below do not work for you but you have a smartphone, you may be able to email yourself a photo of the screen and attach that image to your request.

The screenshot may contain more information than you wish to send. Please consider taking a partial screenshot, cropping, or covering up parts of the image.

Before sending, select a helpful filename, avoiding spaces and special characters. Please choose one of the following file formats:

  • .bmp
  • .jpg, .jpeg
  • .gif
  • .png

 

Double-click on the image to preview it. 

Attaching your screenshot
