Taking Screenshots
We've designed Testmo to make it very easy to work with screenshots. You can paste or drag&drop screenshots in any place you can work with attachments and in all rich-text fields in Testmo's user interface. This means that you do not need to install any additional tools or browser add-ons to work with screenshots in Testmo.
You just take a screenshot with your OS screenshot shortcut or tool and then directly paste the image to Testmo. For example, when working with an exploratory session in Testmo, you can directly paste your images to the session notes. Likewise, you can quickly add screenshots to test cases, test results, project documentation and more by pasting the images without having to first create or edit any files. See below for helpful notes on how to best work with screenshots for your specific OS.

Windows

Microsoft added Snip & Sketch to Windows 10+, a powerful and easy-to-use screenshot tool so you can directly take screenshots, optionally annotate them and easily paste them into Testmo. Screenshots are automatically copied to the clipboard, so you can directly paste the screenshots into Testmo without having to create files first. Just follow these steps:
  • Press Shift+Windows+S to start taking a screenshot
  • Select a window, a region or the entire desktop to take the screenshot
  • Snip & Sketch automatically adds the screenshot to the clipboard (you can optionally also annotate the screenshot now)
  • Press Ctrl+V to directly paste the screenshot to any attachment or rich-text section in Testmo

macOS

Apple includes multiple helpful options to take screenshots from macOS. Screenshots can be automatically copied to the clipboard so you can directly paste the screenshots into Testmo without having to create files first. The easiest way to work with screenshots is to use the new Screenshot tool from Apple:
  • Press Shift+Command+5 to launch the Screenshot tool
  • Select a window, a region or the entire desktop to take the screenshot
  • You can choose to automatically have the screenshot copied to the clipboard (just open the Options menu)
  • Press Ctrl+V to directly paste the screenshot to any attachment or rich-text section in Testmo

Linux

Depending on your Linux distribution and window manager/desktop you use, there are several ways to take screenshots. On many Linux systems, you can copy a screenshot to the clipboard using several shortcuts:
  • Ctrl+PrtSc – Copy the screenshot of the entire desktop
  • Shift+Ctrl+PrtSc – Copy the screenshot of a specific region
  • Ctrl+Alt+PrtSc – Copy the screenshot of the current window
You can then paste the screenshot to Testmo with Ctrl+V to any attachment area and rich-text field. You can also review the website of your Linux distribution for more tools and tips on how to take and annotate screenshots.
