    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.

Cant get print screen to work by pressing print screen button


Pressing the print screen button does not actually print the screen to the printer. It copies it. Open WORD or PAINT and "paste" it. You can then actually print it

How do i print screen on my acer laptop? i see the PrtSc button but it isnt working


It's NOT really straightforward, but is doable.
Here's How:
  1. Press the Print Screen key on your keyboard. It may be labeled [PrtScn].
  2. Open an image editing program, such as Microsoft Paint.
  3. Go to the Edit menu and choose Paste.
  4. If prompted to enlarge the image, choose Yes.
  5. Optional: Use your image editor's crop tool to crop out unnecessary portions of the screen shot.
  6. Go to the File Menu and choose Save As.
  7. Navigate to the folder where you want to save the image.
  8. Type a file name for the image.
  9. Select a file type.
  10. Click the Save button.
Tips:
  1. Hold the Alt key down while pressing Print Screen to capture only the active window.
  2. Generally the GIF format works best when saving screen shots of application windows. The JPEG format usually makes screen shots (especially those with text) blurry, blotchy and discolored.
Yes - the PrintScreen button is really mis-named.

You can find programs that do a far better job of capture screen images. Like this one.. http://www.etrusoft.com/

My print screen button doesn't work on my dv9000 and i have tried EVERYTHING


On my HP Pavilion DV9500 with Win7 64 bit (laptop was new in 2007 and had Vista), I have the same problem, and I press FN-insert/scroll key and this works as the print screen button. That's the function key together with the insert key, which is 2 buttons to the left of the print screen key.

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

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!!
