While taking screenshots is pretty simple on smartphones, Windows and macOS machines, it can be equally confusing on Chromebooks especially if you are new to the operating system.
Just like macOS and Windows, ChromeOS also offers multiple ways to capture screenshots and in this guide, we are going to tell you all about taking screenshots on a Chromebook.
