Mac: How to take a screenshot with the mouse cursor visible

When taking screenshots on a Mac, the Mac screenshot usually hides the mouse cursor so that it is not visible. But sometimes, you also have to drag the pointer to show something right. Fortunately, it is easy to activate with a simple option. See how.

To capture the mouse cursor in screenshots, we need to change an option in the built-in Screenshot application MacOS. Press Shift + Command + 5 on your keyboard and a small toolbar will appear. Click on "Options".


In the "Options" menu that appears, place a check mark next to "Show Mouse Pointer".

After that, every time you take a screenshot with Shift + Command + 3 or Shift + Command + 4, you will also drag the mouse pointer inside the screenshot.

If you want to hide the mouse cursor in the future, just activate the Screenshot toolbar with Shift + Command + 5 again and uncheck "Options"> "Show Mouse Pointer".

MacOS does not record the exact size of an enlarged cursor using Mac accessibility features. This suggests that the pointer image is added to the screenshot by the screenshot program rather than just capturing a raw screen bitmap. If this is a problem, you can try a third-party screenshot application.
