How To Articles

As someone who uses GoToMeeting regularly, I have discovered its great value in conducting virtual meetings and working with colleagues from a distance. One tool that I frequently use is the option to capture screenshots during a meeting. In this guide, I will walk you through the process of taking a screenshot in GoToMeeting, and also offer some of my own helpful advice and techniques.

Step 1: Open the Screen Sharing Panel

To begin, you’ll need to start or join a meeting in GoToMeeting. Once you’re in the meeting session, locate the screen sharing panel on the control bar at the top of the screen. Click on the “Share screen” button to open the screen sharing menu.

Step 2: Select the Screen to Share

In the screen sharing menu, you’ll see a list of screens or applications that you can share. Choose the screen that you want to capture a screenshot of. If you have multiple monitors connected, make sure to select the correct screen.

Step 3: Take the Screenshot

Once you have selected the screen to share, you’ll notice a toolbar at the top of the shared screen. Look for the “Take Screenshot” button in the toolbar and click on it. This will capture the screenshot of the shared screen at the current moment.

Step 4: Save or Annotate the Screenshot

After taking the screenshot, GoToMeeting will prompt you with options to save or annotate the screenshot. If you wish to save the screenshot, simply click on the “Save” button and choose a location on your computer to save it to.

If you want to annotate the screenshot before saving, click on the “Annotate” button. This will open a set of drawing tools that you can use to mark up the screenshot with text, shapes, or freehand drawings. Once you’re done annotating, you can either save the annotated screenshot or discard it.

Step 5: Share the Screenshot

Once you have saved or annotated the screenshot, you can easily share it with other meeting participants. In the screen sharing menu, there is a button labeled “Share File”. Click on this button and select the screenshot file from your computer. GoToMeeting will then share the screenshot with all meeting attendees.

Taking screenshots in GoToMeeting is a useful feature that can enhance collaboration and make it easier to capture important moments during a meeting. Whether you’re highlighting a particular slide, capturing a discussion, or documenting a visual issue, taking screenshots can help you communicate effectively with your team.


As someone who relies on GoToMeeting for remote collaboration, the ability to take screenshots has been invaluable. It allows me to capture and share important information easily. I hope this article has provided you with a comprehensive guide on how to take a screenshot in GoToMeeting. Remember to give it a try and explore the various options for saving and annotating your screenshots. Happy screenshotting!
