I hope I will be able to properly give my question as I am not a native English speaker and I might be running into difficulty. But I am posting an image to make my problem straight forward.
I’m new to Mac. Had my Mac Book Pro for roughly 1 month. I ran into a specific problem that I just could not solve.
I’ll start out with how I solved the problem in Windows. And my question is how I should have done it in OSX Mavericks.
I had specific instructions from someone to visit a website and prepare a print screen. So I went up on the website with Safari and wanted to start print screening as per my instructions. In order to make my print screen more legitimate - according to my instructions - I had to press F12 and on the lower part of the monitor I should have gotten a window where I could choose from different options. I had specific instructions what to look for in the window that popped up with the F12 key.
I looked through many websites but couldn’t find a solution to my problem as my F12 key didn’t function as it should have in Mac. I tried altering the function keys in the keyboard settings but that didn’t work either. So in the end I took out my old Windows laptop and solved the problem with that. Mind you the correct window that I needed for my specific purpose did not pop up in Firefox or Internet Explorer. I needed to download Google Chrome. (The window that popped up in Firefox and Explorer with the use of F12 did not give me the options I needed).
I hope someone has the patience to read through the above. Also please take a look at the attachment I provide. I would need to reach the same result on my Mac Book Pro as I did in Windows. I do not know what the pop up window is called. But I’m sure someone who is more computer literate than I am will definitely know.
In the attachment provided I am looking to get the window which is on the lower one third of the picture that has “Elements, Network, Sources, Timeline, Profiles” etc.
Thank you for your help. Gabi
