In the old DOS days, Print Screen would send a copy of the screen to the printer.

In Windows, Print Screen sends a copy to the Clip Board.
So, what you need to do is open an application like WordPad, MS Word, Paint or some other program and Paste to a new file. Then you can print the image from that file.

A side note: The PrintScreen key captures the whole screen, the ALT-PrintScreen key combination captures only the active window.

Print screen function not working

Try <alt> printscreen. Also the snipping tool in Vista and 7 will do better than print screen.

How can I make PrintScreen? It does not functions with the PrintScreen and Ctrl V. What I have to do?

Back in DOS days the Print Screen key was used to copy whatever was on the monitor screen at the time to the printer.
Today, many people just glance at the key (and wonder what it's there for) and some hit the key. When nothing happens they just forget about it.
Well, Microsoft didn't forget about it at all. They turned it into a "Snapshot" key" which, as the term implies, takes a snapshot of the monitor screen.
Microsoft didn't really highlight the fact that a user, after taking a snapshot of the screen, can easily save and/or print that snapshot using Paint.
After taking the snapshot, in XP simply Click on Start, All Programs, Accessories and Paint. The 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 File, "Save As" and save it with a .jpg extension and/or send it to your printer using File, Print.

How do I get the 'print screen' key to actually print screen?

the print screen key is very misleading, what it actually does is take an image of the screen and save it to the clipboard. after pushing print screen open paint and go to edit : paste. This will display the screen image in paint, you can print it from there.

Cannot save Window screen image with Alt-PrtScr

if there is an 'fn' key on your keyboard then your combo would be
fn+prtsc+alt - to capture top windows and fn+prtsc to capture entire screen
If however your prt sc key is combined with another key and written on top then you need to use
shift+prt sc + alt to capture top windows and shift+prtsc to capture entire screen
