AARRRRGGHHH! Cmd-Shft-4 no longer works in Catalina.

I've use Cmd-Shft-4 for what seems like forever to take screenshots of windows in every OS that I can remember.

But it's not working in Catalina.

So I see Apple has a newer better way — Shft-Cmd-5 and the screen shot toolbar.

Whoopee.

No joy, actually.

Shft-Cmd-3 takes a typical screen shot, as always.

Shft-Cmd-4 takes a cropped area.

Shft-Cmd-5 brings up the screen shot toolbar and highlights my whole screen as until I move onto the toolbar.

The first/leftmost option gives me the camera cursor, shows a camera icon at the end of the toolbar and a mouse click gets the whole screen, a long way to tip a rarey.

The second option, Capture Selected Window, replaces the Camera icon with 'Options' which I don't need at the moment.

No camera, moving the cursor off the toolbar selects the whole screen again. now gives me the camera cursor, and all I can do is click and get the whole screen.

No window is selected and I can't select a window, just click as above.

The third option gets me an arbitrarily selected highlighted area to crop and Capture next to Options on the toolbar.

This option along with Shft-Cmd-3 give the expected results, but the second, Capture Selected Window option gives be a blank, gray screen shot.

I have no idea what's the WTF.

A Restart and a Shutdown/Restart doesn't fix it.

It certainly could be pilot error.

Cmd-Shft-4 works just dandy in Big Sur.

Any ideas?

Yes, I forgot the spacebar.

Pilot error, nothing more to see here.

Command-Shift-4 working here on my Catalina... use it all the time. Just tried it again to make sure nothing had recently caused a change.


My hardware: 2011 Mac mini Server, Catalina 10.15.7 (DosDude1)

Whatever. I can never remember any of those combos. I have to google "screenshot mac" everytime I want to take one. PCs have a "Print Screen" button right there on the keyboard. THANKS STEVE.

I'm on another mini now, Sierra, but I'll recheck later.

Thank you for the additional info.

These days with multiple, high-res monitors, does anyone still take whole-screen screenshots? I haven't for a long time.

On Windows, I use Snip[ & Sketch for screen shots. On Macs, have used cmd-shift-4 to select the area. It's not hard to remember if you take screenshots with any regularity.

If you don't, then you Google it. I do that for a lot of things that I don't do often. Just the way it is unless you have a perfect memory.
