How to take Screenshot the Mac Dock in MacOS

Use Simple Shortcut

Press Command+Shift+4 on your Mac keyboard.

After you press Space, your mouse cursor will turn into a camera icon. Place the cursor over your Dock. When you see that the Dock is highlighted, click your primary mouse button.

Place the mouse cursor over the Dock and click.

When you click, you’ll hear the screenshot sound effect. A clean image of your Dock in PNG format will be saved to your preferred save location (the Desktop, by default).

Alternately, you can run the Screenshot app (or press Shift+Command+5), and then select the “Capture Selected Window” button (It looks like a small window icon.) in the screenshots toolbar that appears.

After you click, hover your mouse pointer over the Dock and click your primary mouse button to capture a screenshot of the Dock.

When you open the screenshot for closer viewing, you might notice that the PNG file includes a translucent alpha channel area for a shadow around the Dock and the Dock itself, depending on the OS you’re using.

In macOS 10.15 Catalina or earlier, the Dock itself will be pure opaque white. But in macOS 11.0 or later, the Dock will look translucent when viewed in a photo editing application. Either way, you’ll see no trace of the desktop wallpaper behind it, which is very handy.

Now that you have the Dock screenshot file, you can edit it or share it any way that you’d normally share a photo. Have fun!
