SOURCE: My Compaq keyboard won't display

The print screen button doesn't usually do/display anything other then pasting the image on the screen to the clipboard. go into another application like word or paint and select ctrl+v to paste (or right click then select paste) If you hold Ctrl then press print screen, it will only copy the open window.

SOURCE: my print sreen button function has changed

If you press & hold SHIFT & THEN Press F1 this will copy the desktop to the clipboard, and then you open Paint, and paste it in, works great.
Hope this helps, I think that's how it works if a printer is attached, perhaps without a printer it reverts to the desktop?

If your HP laptop is a wide screen with a full size keyboard and separate numbet keypad then the Prt Scr key also doubles up as the Home key it is located on the top row of keys on the Number keypad.
If your HP laptop is a standard laptop keyboard then the Prt Scr key also doubles as the Scroll key and it is next to the F12 key.

Tip

How to use the Prt Scr (Print Screen) button.


On every computer keyboard there is a <b>Print Screen</b> button. The basic functionality of this key is to capture the snap-shot/screen-shot of the current screen you are viewing on your monitor and save it as an image file. Once you click this button the screen image is captured and stored in the computer's memory (clipboard). Then you can use the <b>Ctrl + V</b> buttons together to paste it into any image processing software such as <b>Microsoft Paint, Adobe Photoshop or any other Office applications such as Word, Excel or Powerpoint.</b> Once you paste it into any of these applications you can save it and then use the image later for any purpose. <br /><br /><b><u>Here are the steps to use the print screen feature.</u></b><br />1) When you have the part you want captured from your monitor exactly as it looks, look for the <b>Prt Scr</b> or <b>Print Screen</b> button on your keyboard and press it once.<br />2) Now navigate to Microsoft Paint: <b>Start&gt;All Programs&gt;Accessories&gt;Paint</b><br />3) Once Paint is open simply press the <b>Ctrl + V</b> keys in combination to paste the screen shot, or you can go <b>Edit&gt;</b>Paste to do the same.<br />4) You can now, resize it, modify it if required and save it under any name you want for later retrieval.<br /><br /><br /><b>NOTE:</b> If you have opened more than one windows in the screen and you want to capture the snap shot of just the active window and not the entire screen, then press the <b>Alt</b> key while pressing the <b>Prt Scr</b> button. This will capture the image of the active window only<br />Now that you have mastered the art of print screen you can use this to capture error messages in applications for you to use when in need of tech support.
