    Yes it is. The default key-combination for taking screen shots on Mac OS X is: ⌘+⇧+3.

    ⌘ = Apple or Command key

    ⇧ = Shift Key

    The great thing about OS X is you're given the ability to customise things. If you find the default key-combination awkward, you can change it to something else; here's how:

    1. Click on the Apple menu (  ) and select System Preferences from the list.

    2. Now click on the "Keyboard and Mouse" icon, and take a look at the options under "Screen Shots". Double-click on the key-combination for "Save picture of screen as a file" so that it becomes editable.

    3. Use your keyboard to create a new key-combination. When you're done, close System Preferences.

    If using a PC USB keyboard, hit the Print Screen button, then paste into a graphics application like http://www.gimp.org . Otherwise, http://www.tuaw.com/2005/03/02/mac-n00b-switcher-t... has some tips.

    Probably, look for a "Print Screen" or "Screen Shot" button. The keyboards are practically the same or very similar.

    Yes, click shift+apple(?next to your spacebar left or right) and 4.

    You'll get at crosshaired mouse, click and drag on wherever you want to copy screen, and let go.

    Then your image will be on your desktop, .PNG image file
