I think for these type of vocabulary questions a dictionary would serve you well. If you are uncertain as to whether what you find is correct, google images is a good way to confirm.

Give that a try, if you get stuck come back and let us know what you tried and how you got stuck.

don't mean to complicate things...but think that Mainland China and Taiwan use slightly different terms for computer related lingo..so just be aware when finding out.

I would use 显示器.

 

(Please don't tell us this is for a tattoo.)

萤光幕 I'd expect to be an old-style CRT monitor - 萤光 is fluorescence.  I guess it could be in used still in this context, but seems to be more 'screen' in the sense of 'on and off the (TV?) screen'.

 

显示器 is what I'd expect and is the term used for that correct category on amazon.cn. Although in casual 'I need to clean my monitor' usage, I think 屏幕, screen would serve?

Similarly for 'share screen' on Skype etc... So also virtual as well as physical.

 

Edit: My teacher just said "共享屏幕 " in our Skype lesson a few minutes ago.

I'm guessing 萤光幕 is Taiwanese usage — a very large proportion of IT-related terms are different between Taiwan and China mainland (even really fundamental stuff like software 软件 vs 軟體). 显示器 is the only technical term I've heard in mainland usage, with 屏幕 for informal usage or the abstract meaning.

 

Edit: Wow this is a super-old thread, haha.

Looks like 螢幕 is the Taiwanese usage?

Is that another Taiwan one? I've always seen it as 截图 in mainland.

No, mainland. 

 

I was emailed a file named 屏幕快照 2020-09-23 下午8.47.36.png which I'm assuming is what OSX calls a screen capture when UI is set to Mandarin, comparable to Screenshot 2020-09-22 at 17.43.30.png

Interesting. I guess strictly speaking 截图 is a verb (and a separable one at that — you can have 截个图 etc) that's sometimes nounified.
