The built-in tool of ChromeOS on both Chromebooks and Chromeboxes is called "Screen capture." This tool can be used to take images and videos of your device's screen. In this article, we will go over the steps to take a screen capture image using the tool located on your system tray. You can also search for this tool on the bottom left app list.
