In the olde days the PrntScrn key dumped the text contents of the screen to the printer (hence the Print Screen name). Nowadays it usually dumps an image of the screen to the clipboard, from where it can be pasted into a program.

Pixma mx350 when printing from gmail will not print email message heading name at bootom prints but not the message


I have had the same problem. It is very frustrating.

I have two workarounds that I use.

The first is to highlight the message, copy it by hitting Control- C, and then paste it into a Word document (Control V) and print it from the word document.

The second is to hold down the Alt key will hitting the PrtScrn key. This copies the current screen. Open up Paint, hit Control V to paste it and print it from Pain.

Good luck,

Paul

Prtsc sysrq key


If you hold Ctrl and press PrtScrn it will copy an image of your screen to the clipboard.
Now you need an image editing SW, like photoshop or maybe gimp etc.. You have to create a NEW image (empty) then use EDIT function to paste the clipboard into the new image. Nw you can crop out the parts you don't want.

What is a screenshot


A "screenshot" is a snapshot of what's on your computer's screen.
  1. The first step is to create the windows that you want to capture and leave them up on the screen.
  2. Just to the right of your keyboard, you should see three groups of keys. The lower set of keys usually is a group of arrow keys. Above that is usually a set of some six keys that are labeled "Insert," "Home," "Page Up," etc. Above that should be three keys that have rather odd labels - like Pause/Break and ScrLk. One of those keys should be labeledPrtScrn/SysRq. Pressing Alt-PrintScreen (Alt-PrtScrn) places an image of the frontmost window on the clipboard. Pressing PrintScreen by itself places an image of the entiredesktop on the clipboard.
  3. If you press PrtScrn/SysRq, nothing will appear to have happened. However, your computer just took a snapshot of its screen and stored that picture on its clipboard, much as it stores information that you cut and paste.
  4. Open MS-Paint. (From Start/Run, issue the command "mspaint".) Create a new empty image, and use Edit/Paste to bring in the screenshot you just took. (If the screenshot is smaller than the default Paint canvas, you will end up with white areas. Start over: create a new empty image, change its dimensions to 1x1, and Paste again. The canvas will grow for the Paste, but it doesn't shrink.)
  5. Use MS-Paint to Save As, using PNG as the file format (it is superior to all the rest
  6. God bless you

HEY IM FINDING PRINT SCREEN BUTTON ON THS LAPTOP BUT I FAILED KINDLY HELP ME...................


Back in the days of DOS, the PrtScn key used to print the screen. But in all versions of Windows, this works differently, and the name of the key is now an anachronism. The key does *not* print the screen. PrtScrn captures the whole screen, and Alt-PrtScrn captures the active window.

Either one captures the image to the Windows clipboard. Once it's in the clipboard you can paste (Ctrl-V) it into any application that supports graphics (Windows Paint, other graphics programs, even your favorite word processor). You can edit or add to the image as you wish, then print it.
This ability to manipulate the image in a program before printing it is an improvement over the original DOS method of just printing it. But if you'd like that old facility back, there are several third-party freeware/shareware programs that can do this, such as PrintKey2000 at http://www.sharewarejunkies.com/00zwd2/printkey2000.htm

hope this helps

Where is F13 key in dell inspiron1445 laptop ??


Hi,
On Windows based machines, such as the Dell Inspiron Laptop Series, they do not come with a built in F13 key. Unfortunately you cannot add one to the keyboard, but it may be referring to the key after F12, which is usually labeled as Print Screen/SysRQ or PRTSCRN/SYSRQ. It is located around here:

Some external keyboards have an F13 for editing programs that use it. Sorry your laptop does not have one!
Hope this helps. If it does, please accept and rate the solution! Contact me with any more questions you may have. Thanks for using FixYa!

Hi, I cannot print a pdf file or that kind of attachment. Only Word can print. Adobe error shows up and want to shut down the program for protection. I never had the problem before. Just started.


Is it a file that you created in pdf format, or is it one that you have had emailed or attempting to open from another source? Some pdf files have protection put on them by the file originator to avoid the file being changed/printed. Here are some tips to try to get them to print for you.
  1. Open your computer's Internet browser.

  2. 2

    Type www.a-pdf.com/security/a-pdf-rr.exe in the browser's URL box to access the PDF restriction converter "A-PDF Restrictions Remover."

  3. 3

    Press the "Enter" or "Return" key. Your Internet browser will access the site's PDF converter file. A dialog box will appear on your screen--"Opening a-pdf-rr.exe."

  4. 4

    Click "Open" or "Run" to download and set up the program directly. Click "Save" or "Save As" to save the program's setup file on your computer for running later--use this option if you using a slow connection like dial-up. The program will download and set up on your computer if you selected the "Open" or "Run" option.

    If saving the file to your computer, navigate to the directory where you want to save the file to. Select the "Desktop" if you have a hard time locating downloaded files on your system.

    You do not have to access the A-PDF Restrictions Remover website again once the file starts downloading or saving to your computer.

  5. 5

    Double click on the "a-pdf-rr.exe" icon to open the program, if you selected the "Save" or "Save As" option.

  6. 6

    Click "Run" when prompted with the "Open File -- Security Warning."

  7. 7

    Click "Next." Click on the circle by the wording "I accept the agreement." Click "Next."

  8. 8

    Select the directory where you want to save the "A-PDF Restrictions Remover" file. The default is your "C:\Program Files\A-PDF Restrictions Remover" folder. Click "Next."

  9. 9

    Click "Next," "Install" and then "Finish." A-PDF Restrictions Remover will start automatically.

  10. 10

    Navigate to the directory where the protected PDF file is located.

  11. 11

    Right-click on the PDF file name. Select "Remove Restrict & Save As."

  12. 12

    Select a location to save the converted PDF file to. Click "Save." If you want to change the PDF file's name, enter a new name in the box next to the wording "File name." The protected PDF is now converted to a unprotected one.

  13. 13

    Double-click on the converted file to open it.

  14. 14

    Select "File," "Print" and then "OK" to print the unprotected, converted PDF file.

  15. Printing a Protected PDF By Taking a "Screen Shot"
  16. 1

    Open the protected PDF file2

  17. Press the "Alt" and "PrtScrn" keys together. The PrtScrn key is located on the upper right-hand side of your keyboard, if using a desktop computer keyboard. If using a laptop, the PrtScrn key is located above the "F10" function key.


  18. 3

    Open your computer's word processing program by clicking on the program's icon on your system's "Desktop" or from the "All Programs" menu.

  19. 4

    Press "CTRL" and "V" keys together to paste the screenshot into a blank document.

    If using a Mac, click "Edit," "Paste" from the main toolbar at the top of your word processing program.

  20. 5

    Click "File," "Print" and then "OK" to print the PDF screenshot. If the protected PDF file contains more than one page, press the "PgDn" key and repeat steps 2 through 5.

How do i use print screen key


If you have one monitor, you can use any one of the three +PrtScrn.

If you have two monitors, using CTRL+PrtScrn or Shift+Prtscrn will copy both screens.

With two monitors, if you want to copy one screen, click on the screen you want to copy and use the Alt+PrtScrn keys.
