To take a screenshot on a Chromebook, you can use one of the following methods:

1. **Capture Full Screen:**

   - Press the "Ctrl" key and the "Show Windows" key (typically located in the top row, usually labeled with a square or box icon). This key may also be labeled as "F5" or "F6" depending on your Chromebook model.

2. **Capture Partial Screen:**

   - Press the "Ctrl" key, the "Shift" key, and the "Show Windows" key simultaneously.

   - Your cursor will change to a crosshair icon. Click and drag to select the area of the screen you want to capture.

   - The screenshot will be saved to your Downloads folder.

3. **Capture Active Window:**

   - Click on the window you want to capture to make it active.

   - Press the "Alt" key and the "Show Windows" key simultaneously.

   - Your Chromebook will capture a screenshot of the active window and save it to your Downloads folder.

Please note that the "Show Windows" key may have a different appearance or label depending on your Chromebook model. It is typically located in the top row of keys, near the top-right corner of the keyboard. If you're unsure which key it is on your Chromebook, look for a key with a square or box icon, often accompanied by a "Ctrl" key or labeled with "F5" or "F6."
