How to use the PRINT SCREEN button on my computer keyboard


Here is very quick tip.

Go to the website you would like to to capture. Hold down the Shift key and push the Print Screen key. Next, open up your email program and click new to compose an email. Put your cursor in the body section like you would to begin an email. Now simply hold the CTRL key down and at the same time push down the "V" key. There you have it! Now you can email, print, or save what you captured on your computer screen.

Hope you find this helpful! See below for an example. Cool, eh?

How can i unlock my keyboard


Recognize that you have a locked keyboard.

If your PC computer is not responding to keystrokes or is responding very slowly, you could have a locked keyboard.


Use your mouse to move the pointer over the "Start" button.

Use the left-click button to bring up the "Start" pop-up menu.


Position the pointer over "Settings" and use the left-click button to select. T

hen select "Control Panel." On some versions of PC operating systems, you can select "Control Panel" directly from the "Start" menu.


Select "Accessibility Options" to bring up another menu, then select "Keyboard."

You'll see three options that have check boxes.


Make sure each check box does not have a check mark in it.

The three options are "StickeyKeys," "FilterKeys" and "ToggleKeys."

Note that these options can become checked if the keyboard operator has repeatedly depressed the "Shift" key in rapid succession--or if the "Shift" key is held down for longer than eight seconds.


If the keyboard is still not responding, the problem could be that the computer has lost communication with the keyboard.

Turn off the computer.


Disconnect the power supply.

Remove and then reconnect the keyboard cable, then reconnect the power supply.


Turn the computer on.

This will reboot the computer, allowing it to recognize the keyboard.


hope this helps

Toshiba Equium M70 Trouble with keyboard only two keys dont work with the shift key


The first thing I would try is buy a can of compressed air and give your keyboard a good cleaning. There may be stuff under the keys that are letting them work. Was there any liquid spilled on the keyboard?
