I'm trying to report a bug where the cursor shape matters. The two easy screen capture methods exclude the cursor:

  • Command-Shift-3
  • The Applications->Utilities->Grab program

With grab you can set a specific cursor, which misses the point. Here I want to capture the cursor shape that occurs when the mouse is in a specific place in a specific application.

How can I capture the entire screen, just as I see it, including the cursor?


You can use the CLI:

screencapture -T 5 -C /path/to/file.png

-T <seconds> is the delay before taking the screenshot. -C captures the cursor in the screenshot.
