Sometimes I would like to do a screen print without printing the whole page. I have a Dell Inspiron 1000 and cannot figure out how to use the prt scr key. I have also tried to use the combinations ctrl/alt/p and nothing. Can someone assist me in performing just a screen print?

Re: prt scr key
After you press print scr, it won't print to printer, you need to paste it in application such as paint (come with ms windows) and from there you can print it to printer.
the combination key,
try press prn scr only and paste it in paint application.
if it isnot working, try using shift+prn scr.

The 'prt sc' key capture the entire windows screen.
Hold the 'alt' key while pressing the 'prt sc' key will capture the active window.
Then you should open paint (under accessories) and use 'Ctrl V' to paste.
Print Screen Use this method to print screen. Press and hold down the Alt key and the press the PrtSc key, this places the screen image into the Clipboard. . Open a blank Word document and then Click on Edit - Paste. The image is then places onto this page, you can up the image by holding down the Shift key and then place the cursor on the bottom corner of the image, then press the left mouse button and drag it down to the right, release the mouse button when you have d the image to your requirements. NOTE - Holding down the Shift button will maintain the image in the correct proportion. You can now print this image document and or add text before printing.
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.
depends on what you are trying to do. it you think that this will print the screen to the printer you are wrong. Print Screen will print the screen to the clipboard for you then to paste it into a new image of a graphic program
try this hit prt scr then open ms paint. hit ctrl+v and you will see the image you "printed"
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..
