What is the Print Screen key on my keyboad used for?

If you used computers back in the 80's (DOS days) you probably remember using the Print Screen key on your keyboard to print a copy of whatever was on the monitor screen at that time on your printer. It wasn't used that much because back in those days it took forever for a dot matrix printer to print out the entire monitor screen. However, it came in handy once and awhile.<br />Today, many people just glance at the Print Screen key (and wonder what it's there for), and some hit the key and when nothing happens they just forget about it.<br />Well, Microsoft didn't forget about it at all. They turned it into a "Snapshot key" which, as that term implies, takes a snapshot of the monitor screen. <br />Microsoft doesn'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.<br />After taking the snapshot, in Windows XP simply click on Start, All Programs, Accessories and Paint. Then click on Edit followed by Paste and Voila! There's your screen snapshot in living color staring you in the face! This same capability exists in other versions of Windows, however the key-stroke sequence differs.<br />Now you can click on File, Save As, and save it with a .jpg/tif extension (etc.) and/or send it to your printer using File, Print.<br /><br />Perhaps Microsoft tried to get the keyboard manufacturers to change the name of the key from Print Screen to Snapshot, but I guess we will be stuck with the keyboad Print Screen label forever.<br /><br />Anyway, the Print Screen key is a much more functional tool under Windows than it ever was

How do I do a print screen on Benq A122. What are the Key stroke combinations to perform this

To print a copy of the screen on your printer.
Hold down the Alt key and then press the PrtScr key.
Open Word - a blank document - click on the page, then click on Edit - Paste, this will place the screen image on the page. You can enlarge the image by holding down the shift key and click on the right hand corner of the image and drag it down to the right to make it as large as you require. By holding down the shift key, it will maintain the correct image proportion.
you can now add text and print this document.

There should be either a switch or a coded feature that is set to "delay" print usually you have to hold the code key down then press the key button (probably one of the number keys)under the feature that says delay.
