I take several screenshots with my Blackberry Smartphone daily! One of the features that I wish that could be done using my Mac. And with some simple instructions now it can be done. Hit the jump to find out how.

To take a screenshot of the active display on a BlackBerry® smartphone, complete the following steps:

  1. Connect the BlackBerry smartphone to the Macintosh computer using a USB cable
  2. Open Terminal
  3. Type: cd /Applications/BlackBerry\ Desktop\ Software.app/Contents/MacOS/
  4. Type: ./bbdm screenshot active ~/Desktop/screenshot.png

Note: If the BlackBerry smartphone has a password, type ./bbdm -password, whereis the password which is set on the BlackBerry smartphone.    By default, the screenshot is saved on the desktop named screenshot.png
