Prt scrn button does not work on Gateway KB-0532 keyboard

I have a neat quad core Gateway, had it for a few months, had a Dell before. Print screen does not work. Won't copy to Word, into e-mail, into Excel, Notepad, Paint, NOTHING. I am not computer illiterate, use this function every day at work with no issues (Dell). Anyone got any ideas? I have used in combo with Shift, Alt, and Ctrl to no avail. I'm desperate as there is no other way that I know of to copy file listings and such.

It doesn't work on my laptop. It works if you hold down the FN key whilst pressing the prt scrn button, if you cannot find the FN key, on my laptop it is next to the CTRL button on the bottom left. Hope I've solved your problem!

I have a new Dell Latitude E6400. Print Scrn button does not work for me, either. Worked on my previous Dell laptop; works fine on my Dell desktop.

Windows xp dell latitude e6400 print screen command? tried fn+alt+ (f11) prt scrn and fn+(f11) prt scrn neither worked looking foreward to hear from you


What the Print Screen option does is copies the screen to the clipboard. You will need to use a program such as Word and past the content to the open page.
By hitting the Print Screen button by itself will show the image of the desktop.
The Alt + Print Screen combination will give you a pic of the active window

You can also try this...
If your Print Screen is labeled in blue & your Function key is also blue then you have to hold Fn key while using Print Scrn , "Fn"+"Print Scrn" or "Fn"+"Alt+Print Scrn"

let me know if you have any other questions..
Thanks!

How do you do Print Screen with a Dell E6400 laptop? The alt-print screen combination of keys doesn't copy to the clipboard. Are there other keys for this?


Hi,

Press Alt+Fn+(Prnt Scrn) to take screenshot of the active application. To take the snapshot of the whole screen, press Fn+(Prnt Scrn).

Please give good ratings if this answer helped you.

Thanks

I cannot do a Print Screen with my Dell Latitude d610. I have tried all combinations of Ctrl+Prnt scrn and Fn+Prnt scrn. Any idea's?


Based on your keyboard layout, you don't need a key combination to capture your screen. Just press the "Print Scrn" button and your screen image will be copied to your clipboard. Now if you have pressed the "Print Scrn" key, go to MS Paint or any other image processing programs and "paste" it there.

Notice that your "Print Scrn" key is printed on top of the keyboard key and in white color. That means that it is the default key when pressed so there is no need to combine with Fn or shift. But if it is printed in blue or orange (your Fn key should be in blue or orange also) that is the time you need a key combination.
