Prt scr key

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?

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.

How do I cut an image from the internet?


There are several ways to capture images from the internet.

In your browser, right click on an image and select Save Image As...
or Copy Image and then paste into your graphics application.
Some web pages use programming to prevent copying images and the right click and copy/save won't work easily. There are ways around it, but you have to start hacking the copy protection code.

Do a screen or window capture:
On a Windows PC, look for a Print Scr (Print Screen) key on your keyboard.
Press that key and the whole screen will copied to the "clipboard" and can be pasted into another application. You may need to use another key in combination with Print Scr. I have to press the Fn key + Print Scr on my keyboard. Don't actually type the "+".
Also, the Alt key + Print Scr will capture only the current window, not the whole screen.

There are many screen capture programs out there as well. IrFanView is an excellent free graphics tool with a screen capture feature.

How to use the Prt Scr (Print Screen) button.


On every computer keyboard there is a <b>Print Screen</b> button. The basic functionality of this key is to capture the snap-shot/screen-shot of the current screen you are viewing on your monitor and save it as an image file. Once you click this button the screen image is captured and stored in the computer's memory (clipboard). Then you can use the <b>Ctrl + V</b> buttons together to paste it into any image processing software such as <b>Microsoft Paint, Adobe Photoshop or any other Office applications such as Word, Excel or Powerpoint.</b> Once you paste it into any of these applications you can save it and then use the image later for any purpose. <br /><br /><b><u>Here are the steps to use the print screen feature.</u></b><br />1) When you have the part you want captured from your monitor exactly as it looks, look for the <b>Prt Scr</b> or <b>Print Screen</b> button on your keyboard and press it once.<br />2) Now navigate to Microsoft Paint: <b>Start&gt;All Programs&gt;Accessories&gt;Paint</b><br />3) Once Paint is open simply press the <b>Ctrl + V</b> keys in combination to paste the screen shot, or you can go <b>Edit&gt;</b>Paste to do the same.<br />4) You can now, resize it, modify it if required and save it under any name you want for later retrieval.<br /><br /><br /><b>NOTE:</b> If you have opened more than one windows in the screen and you want to capture the snap shot of just the active window and not the entire screen, then press the <b>Alt</b> key while pressing the <b>Prt Scr</b> button. This will capture the image of the active window only<br />Now that you have mastered the art of print screen you can use this to capture error messages in applications for you to use when in need of tech support.

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.

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!

What does the "FLock" used for on a wireless keybd 4000? How do I toggle the PrtScn. SysRgk, Insert button? I sure would like to get a manual on the Kbd and Mouse. Thanks in advance for any help you may...


Prt Scr = print screen
To do a "Prt Scr" hold the CTRL key down and push the "Prt Scr" It will copy the screen info to the clipboard. And you can paste it in notepad, word etc.


The F Lock key, depending on its state, will allow either a function key's "normal" operation or a new "enhanced" operation. The initial state of the F Lock key is "off", and in this state, the function keys use their "enhanced" operation.
For many, the way that the F Lock key operates is not desirable; some people want "normal" function key operation, some people don't need the keys at all.

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

Print screen


You have to hold down the FN (function) key in the lower left corner of the keyboard, for example press fn+alt+prt scr(insert) simultaneously to capture the current window into the clipboard.
