I'm having trouble using the Print Screen Function. I bought my keyboard off of Ebay and have no instructions on how to make that function work. I have tried multiple combinations such as num-Lock CNTRL/F11, but cannot get it to function. Can you tell me the keystrokes to use?

Number pad on wireless keyboard not working


turn on your numeric lock............can be enabled in BIOS, should be same as on corded type.... The Print Screen key does not work. Try the following:
  • The Print Screen key copies an image of the screen to the clipboard (not the printer). To use the image, start an application that uses graphics, such as Microsoft Paint, and use the Paste function.
  • If your keyboard has an F Lock key, press it to toggle between Function key modes. On some keyboards, the Print Screen key only works if F Lock is on.

I am using Lenovo Y550 laptop. I want to use the Print Screen command but unfortunately there is no Print Screen key in this laptop. Could anyone please help me with regards to this issue. Thanks.


Most laptops do not have a dedicated print screen key, but instead have a function key (lower left of the keyboard, with some abbreviation of the word "function" on a key in a different color than the writing on the rest of the keys). Once you find the function key, look at the writing on the other keys that is the same color as the writing on the function key. One of those "other color" labels will be for print screen, and to use it, you hold down the function key at the same time as you push whatever key says print screen in the other color.

Actually there is no separate PrtScn key on the Arc keyboard. The print screen is a Function key combo.

How do i use the prt scr button


Whatever happened to the Print Screen key??
If you did computers back in the 80's (DOS days) you probably remember using the Print Screen key on your keyboard to print a copy of whatever was on the monitor screen at that time to your printer. It wasn't used that much because back in those days it took forever for a dot matrix printer to print out the entire monitor screen. However, it came in handy once and awhile.
Microsoft has turned the key into into a "Snapshot key" which, as that term implies, takes a snapshot of the monitor screen.
After taking the snapshot, in XP simply click on Start, All Programs, Accessories and Paint. Then click on Edit followed by Paste and Voila! There's your screen snapshot in living color staring you in the face!
Now you can use "Save As" and save it with a .jpg/tif extension (etc.) and/or send it to your printer using File, Print.
If your keyboard Print Screen key performs more than one function you will have to experiment a little to get it the key to perform the Print Screen Function. Try holding down the ALT, SHIFT, or CTRL key (or any "special" keys unique to your keyboard) when you hit the Print Screen key in order to get the key to perform its Print Screen function.

Using the print screen button


When you use the Alt Print Screen button then you need to place it onto a word document in order to print it. Open up word and select to paste the frame into your word document and then print it out.

Function Key Issue


Your keyboard may have a function key lock (could be up in the right corner) that locks the keys in the Fn mode. Look for that. I have seen this on several keyboards. On some keyboards I've been able to get around this by hitting the print screen, scroll lock, or pause key to unlock it.

Insert or over-type feature


I have the Microsoft Comfort Keyboard and it has a "F lock" key. This key has to be set on "Off" to let it know that I want to use the Print Screen function versus the Insert function on the same key. May be your keyboard is the same way.
