In most recent updates of MAC OS, you will be notified that the Device Monitor will request access to screenshot and lead you to setting. If you are not notified, you can use the following guide to change the setting: https://support.apple.com/en-gb/guide/mac-help/mchld6aa7d23/mac

If you are using Linux with Wayland display server (which is default from Ubuntu 21.04 and up) you need to have gnome-screenshot available in order to capture screenshot with the Device Monitor. Note that using the setup with Wayland, the screen gives a flash and a sound whenever a screenshot is captured. This is standard procedure when using Wayland which cannot be avoided when taking screenshots.
