Download this utility that will make PrtScr easier to do:
Once installed, Purrint places an icon on the system tray, though I'd say it's more comfortable to use with the keyboard itself. Now, every time you press the PrtScr key (or the Alt+PrtScr shortcut to capture the active window) a window will open and offer you the possibility to copy the image to the clipboard (as the standard key would do), save it as an image file or send it to your printer right away.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

How can I take a screenshot on my laptop computer


What laptop?
What Operating System?

In windowss you can use the "Print Screen" function by pressing the "PrtScn" key on an extended keyboard. If you hold the "Alt"-key while pressing the PrtScn-key, it takes a snapshot of the currently active window.

Then you have to open a paint or Word document. Now you can paste the screenshot.

If you use Windows 7, click the Start button and type "Snipping Tool". This will start the built-in screenshot software.

I don't know how to print screen from my Eee PC! please help :)


Have you ever pressed the PrtScn (print screen) key on your Windows keyboard and wondered why it was there since it never seemed to do anything? Well, it does do something! It copies an image of your screen onto the "clipboard," ready to paste into any graphics program. These steps show you how to use it along with Windows' standard image editor, Microsoft Paint, to save an image of your screen

PrtScn/sysRq button not working. suggestions?


In Windows, the print screen key actually transfers a copy of what ever you have on your screen to the "scratch pad" of your machine, then you can transfer that copy to an internal program such as "Word" (If you have Word Installed") You will not see anything until you transfer, by getting up the program, and then hitting the key Ctrl+V or going to Edit up in the left corner of the program, and selecting "Paste"

Good day, I would like to know what are the keys to do print screen with that keyboard, as the PrtScn button doesn't seem to work when pushed alone. Actually, I'm not able to do any print screen with this...


After you press PRINT-SCREEN,
click Start.
Click All Programs.
Click Accessories.
Open Paint.
Click Edit.
Click Paste.
The image that you "printed" will can be manipulated, and eventually printed, using the 'Paint' program.

When you hit the "PrtScn" key, your desktop or whatever you see on the screen will "Copy" that image into memory. To actually see this image open Paint (or an other photoeditor program) and hit "Ctrl+V" (Paste). Now you can see the image, save it, print it or whatever.

I can't figure out how to use the Print Screen Key.


Totally misses mentioning the f lock key on this keyboard. It could have the print screen key toggled to the insert function.
