    Default Screenshots and Multi-Tasking on MAC

    Hello

    Question on the game... I am used to playing on Windows and have 2 questions so far on the Mac

    1. What keys would you use to do a screen shot so the screen shot automatically goes to the screenshots folder? I think on Windows it was alt+f9.....what is it on a MAC??

    2. How do you do multi-tasking on the MAC to get out of the game to do something else while the game is playing... on Windows if you
    just click on the ALT key it would do that but I think you have to tick something on the game itself in the preferences to allow that to
    happen... can you let me know what i need to tick as well as what key to press to multi task

    Thanks

    Tom

    IIRC, the Alt + Tab equivalent on a mac is command + tab.

    If you go to the display and audio section in preferences, under the resolution drop down or something it should have windowed mode. It might be greyed out depending on the size of your monitor or resolution you're using though I think.

    ok so once i do that just hit the command key on the mac to make it work since command is equivalanet to alt on the windows computer correct?

    Well if you have it in windowed mode, you should just be able to switch between applications using the apple dock or whatever it is. If you'd rather just have it in full screen then use it as full screen, then use command + tab to switch between applications

    Command + Shift + 3 will give you a full screenshot that will then be placed on your desktop
    Command + Shift + 4 will allow you to select a certain area you'd like to take a screenshot of that will then be placed on your desktop
