    Hi,

    I have a .pdf document with white writing black background. I managed to reverse this on screen, but the final print aways prints the original white on black.

    Is it possible to use Acer screen print function and if so, how does this work and what are the keystrokes I need to enable screen print? On my keyboard the Prt Scrn button legend is underlined with Sys Rq (whatever that means!)



    Cheers,



    Mike

I had the same problem and found out that I had to press the "F Lock" key first. I have no idea what F Lock is or who ever pushed it...but now print screen works the way I was accustomed to. Go Figure

    F Lock was the key to getting the print screen to work! Thank you! Who would have guessed?! It sounds like it's specific to MS keyboards -- is it? Thank you ylbradjohnso.

Boy oh boy. Surprising how such a simple problem can become so difficult. If you want to sent whatever is on your "active" screen directly to your printer, use the "ctrl" + "p" keys. Yep, it's that easy.

With print screen button, it copies the screen so you have to paste it onto somethign like paint or photoshop.

If you have a keyboard like mine, there is a silver button above the esc key and it's related light that shines below the space bar. if it's not on the function keys, including print screen, work.

Keyboard wont print screen


Try unplugging your keyboard, restarting your computer and then plugging the keyboard back in.
If there is no change, try updating the keyboard driver by going to "Start" and searching for "Device Manager". Find your keyboard on the list of devices under the "Keyboards" section.
Right click on it and click "Properties" then "Driver" and then "Update Driver"

When I press the PrtScrn button nothing happens. I can not find a way to print the screen


To do a "Print Screen, hold down the Shift Key and Hit PritScrn. Open Paint or some other graphics program and paste the image. This will paste the print screen to the graphics program and you can then edit, print or manage the print screen any way you desire. Let me know if you require additional assistance.

How do you "print screen"?


I don't think that this keyboard has that key built in.
Have a look at Gadwin PrintScreen for capturing screens or active windows (and other features). The default hot key for this program is "print screen" but can be redefined.
You could also use the on screen keyboard.
Windows XP comes with a built in on screen keyboard. Basically a graphic of a keyboard comes up and acts like your keyboard, you can use your mouse to hunt and peck around. What uses does this have and what did I use it for? Well, it's good for people with disabilities, where it would be easier to use a mouse than trying to type or it's great to use when your keyboard goes loco on you. Yes, we've all had our keyboard go nuts. Here is how you launch it:
- Click "Start" button - Click on "RUN" - Enter\type "OSK" (without quotes)
The keyboard comes on
You can also create a shortcut to the "On-Screen Keyboard", because if your keyboard should go out on you, it would be handy to have it. All you do to create the shortcut is to:
- Right click on the desktop - Click the new shortcut button - Enter\type OSK, click next twice, and there you have it.

Some keyboards have a feature called "Number Lock" It is mostly found on laptops. But turn it off to regain your default keyboard. On most keyboards it is located near the screen shot, print screen buttons. Push your shift key and the NumLk/ScrnLk button, and your keyboard should return to default.

Hope this helps...... :)

Print screen doesn´t work


If the print screen button doesn't work, try to use Alt + Print Screen. If that doesn't work either, then try to re-install the software that came with your keyboard (if there is).

However, for most multi-media keyboards and mice, the CD that comes with them usually made to program the special buttons only. But I'm not sure in your case. There could be an option for you to re-program the buttons on your end, including the Print Screen button.

But if there's no way to re-program it and the Alt + Print Screen didn't help, then you may want to send the keyboard to the reseller or manufacturer for repair. It's a hardware defect.

Thank you and good luck!

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.

Print Screen Button not working


Yes, there is a button, up by the function buttons, that says "print screen". I've tried pressing just that button; pressing that button and the alt button together; and pressing the "Mode F" button and the print screen button together, but nothing seems to work

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.

Microsoft multimedia wireless print screen button does not work


I had this problem today with a new Microsoft keyboard. The Alt + Print Screen did not produce an image when pasted in Word.

We found that "F LOCK" button needed to be cancelled and this useful facility now works!!
