  2. Hold down the APPLE [Command] and SHIFT keys

  3. Press 3 for a screen shot of the entire screen

  4. Press 4 to get "Crosshairs" so you can select just a section of the screen you want a screenshot for

  5. Press the space bar after you press 4 if you want it to automatically size the screenshot so that it perfectly matches the window it's over. After you press the space bar, a camera icon should come up.

Screenshots of Game Issues

  1. Load the game and navigate or play to the point at which the issue occurs
  2. Press F5 (this is the default Screenshot key) to save a screenshot
  3. Locate the screenshot image which was created after closing the game (screenshots will be saved to the game folder under your username folder in the SteamApps directory).
    Example: /Documents/Steam Content/[account name]/team fortress 2/tf/screenshots


Attaching your screenshot to a Steam Support ticket

  4. Click 'Add Attachment' to reveal the uploading interface
  5. Click on the 'Browse' button to locate the file on your computer
  6. Once you have located the file, select it in the browser window and click 'Open'

At this point, if you need to upload more than one file, you may do so by clicking 'Attach' and following steps 3 through 6

Submit your ticket once you have finished attaching the file(s).
