How do I provide a screenshot?

When we're troubleshooting ads or errors, there's no substitute for knowing exactly what you're seeing. Here's how to provide a screenshot when you submit a bug or ad report. It will save you some time if you can provide one with your report, because we can start troubleshooting much earlier.


  • It will help if you capture your entire screen. Often there are things we need to see that "fall out of the shot" when you capture only the ad itself.
  • Please send us only .gif, .jpg, or .png files. They're much easier for us to open across all the browsers and operating systems we use.
  • In the instructions that follow, Ctrl+V (for example) means "press and hold the Ctrl key and press the V key." Case doesn't matter here. Ctrl+V is the same as Ctrl+v. If you use a Mac, replace Ctrl with Cmd.

Create a screenshot

Follow these instructions from to capture a screenshot in Windows, MacOS, Chrome OS (Chromebook), Android, and iOS. Be sure to save it to a file.

You can also use the camera on a mobile device to take a picture of your computer's display. Please check the picture to be sure it's clear (not blurry), glare-free, and large enough to see easily.
