Google maps is a free online service provided by Google that allows users to browse street maps, get driving and walking directions, search for businesses, and view satellite images. You may want to make a copy of a particular Google map so that you can display it on a slide presentation, edit it in an image editing program, or post it on a blog. Fortunately, you can do this by following the steps below.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy


  1. 1

    Go to Google maps and open the map you want to copy.

  2. 2

    Press the "Print Screen" key on your keyboard (usually abbreviated as "PrtSc"). Pressing this key copies an image of your computer screen onto a clipboard.

  3. 3

    Open a blank document in a photo editing program.

  4. 4

    Click on the blank document and then press "Ctrl" + "V." This pastes the image of your computer screen onto the blank document. You can then use the photo editing program tools to crop the map to your liking.

Tips and warnings

  • If you simply want to send a copy of a Google map to a friend, you can click the "Send" option in the upper right corner of the Google map and then type in your friend's e-mail address and click "Send."
