Question about HP Pavilion a1410n (ER890AA) PC Desktop
My ''Print Scr'' button only goes to the printer now and it used to just put the printscreen on the clipboard. How do I reset it?
If you press & hold SHIFT & THEN Press F1 this will copy the desktop to the clipboard, and then you open Paint, and paste it in, works great.
Hope this helps, I think that's how it works if a printer is attached, perhaps without a printer it reverts to the desktop?

To reset it just turn off the pc, remove the cables to it, press and hold the power button for 10 sec. Reinsert the cables and turn on the pc.
Press Print Screen again and it would reset...

Whatever happened to the Print Screen key??
If you did 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 to 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.
Microsoft has turned the key into into a "Snapshot key" which, as that term implies, takes a snapshot of the monitor screen.
After taking the snapshot, in 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!
Now you can use "Save As" and save it with a .jpg/tif extension (etc.) and/or send it to your printer using File, Print.
If your keyboard Print Screen key performs more than one function you will have to experiment a little to get it the key to perform the Print Screen Function. Try holding down the ALT, SHIFT, or CTRL key (or any "special" keys unique to your keyboard) when you hit the Print Screen key in order to get the key to perform its Print Screen function.
