How to Print Screen


I am not very sure what exactly you did mean, but I would assume you want to know which button functions the Print Screen. Take a look at this:
nonontech_111.jpg


The arrow is pointed to the Print Screen Key. Not all the keyboards have similar names, it could be "Prt Scr" or "Print Screen Sys Rq" etc..When you press the key i.e. Print Screen, anything that is shown/displayed on the screen of your monitor will be captured to the clipboard like you've copied something, but actually it's not in a defined format, you'll need a Photo editor like Paint or Photoshop or word processing program like Ms-Word etc.. Press the Print Screen key once, open "Paint" [if your system is Windows] or Photoshop or Ms-Word and Paste it [Press C+V on the keyboard so that it would be paste into he document of the program]. You'll see the captured screenshot of the desktop screen in the program, you can save it as JPG or GIF etc.. according to your needs or based on the format supported by the program you are doing this..

If you have problem, please let me know with more details.


Good Luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Windows xp dell latitude e6400 print screen command? tried fn+alt+ (f11) prt scrn and fn+(f11) prt scrn neither worked looking foreward to hear from you


What the Print Screen option does is copies the screen to the clipboard. You will need to use a program such as Word and past the content to the open page.
By hitting the Print Screen button by itself will show the image of the desktop.
The Alt + Print Screen combination will give you a pic of the active window

You can also try this...
If your Print Screen is labeled in blue & your Function key is also blue then you have to hold Fn key while using Print Scrn , "Fn"+"Print Scrn" or "Fn"+"Alt+Print Scrn"

let me know if you have any other questions..
Thanks!

Prt scrn button does not work on Gateway KB-0532 keyboard


It doesn't work on my laptop. It works if you hold down the FN key whilst pressing the prt scrn button, if you cannot find the FN key, on my laptop it is next to the CTRL button on the bottom left. Hope I've solved your problem!

Six keyboard keys I don't know how to use


Insert: You press this key to toggle either overwrite mode or insert mode when you are typing documents. In overwrite mode, the characters will be replaced where your cursor is in the middle of a sentence and in insert mode, the characters will be added.
PRT SC: Short for print screen. You press this and the computer will take a snapshot of your computer's screen and copy it to the clipboard. Then you can open up paint or word and press CTRL-V to paste that snapshot of your screen as a picture in your document.
HOME: Takes your cursor to the very beginning of a document in a word processor.
SCROLL: Toggles the scroll function in a document.
PG UP: Moves the document you are looking at up a page.
PAUSE: Will pause a list being sent to your screen from the command window.
DELETE: Will delete whatever you have highlighted on your screen
SYS RQ: Check your notebook's information for this.
END: Will take your cursor to the end of the current line, paragraph, or document.
NUM LK: will turn on the numberlock function, allowing you to use the right side ofyour keyboard like a numberpad.

Thanks and please take a moment to rate as fixya.
