I’m wondering if one of you knows how to accomplish this…
I help my Dad all the time on his Mac using remote screen sharing. But often, such as when I’m in the office and cannot access screen sharing, I cannot help him with a message that pops up on his screen; and later on, when I’m home, he cannot reproduce it.
Unfortunately it’s too overwhelmingly confusing to him to learn how to take a screen shot, attach it to an email, and send it to me.
After years of facing this issue, it occurred to me recently that there should be a way that he could hit a SINGLE KEY, like a Function key, which would automatically take a screen shot and email it to my (pre-configured) email address. No cut/paste, no opening the mail app and figuring out how to click Send (no, he can’t handle that).
Not long ago I did some googling and found a number of automation tools, but my initial look didn’t find anything that simple. And I don’t know how to write AppleScript and don’t feel like spending a lot of time on this.
I was hoping one of you might know if there’s a simple tool to let me do this? I’d be willing to spend a few bucks on it if needed. In fact, he’s probably be willing to pay for it
Thanks in advance!
