Hold down the "Control" and "Print Screen" keys together to copy the screen. Then open a program such as "word" or an image editing program like "paint" then right click on your mouse and choose "paste".

How do I do a print screen on my IBM thinkcentre D1U?

Is that a laptop or a desktop?

If it is a desktop, that would depend on your keyboard where the printscreen button would be located,

if it is a laptop, can you please put the full model of the laptop?

How to turn off the power saver mode on a compaq SR5510F PC

You can access these settings from the control panel. Following pictures will give you the idea what to do:



Make sure that the Classic View is enabled. The printscreens are from Vista but equally valid for XP and Windows 7; only user interface is different.

If your system came with preinstalled utility for power management, you can use it instead to set power options. For more information refer to the user manual for this system which can be found here.

  1. Click on the Start Menu and start typing "snipping" into the search box.
  2. Snipping Tool should show up in the Programs list above the search box, and you can click on it to start it.
  3. The Snipping Tool window will appear on your screen. You may move it to an edge of the screen so it's not in your way, but it will also disappear when you start dragging a selection area.
  4. The Snipping Tool assumes you want to create a new clipping as soon as you open it. Your screen will dim, and you can click and drag your cursor to select an area to copy. As you drag, the selected area will be darker, and surrounded by a red border if you've never changed the Snipping Tool options.
  5. When you release the mouse button, the captured area will open in the Snipping Tool window. If you're not happy with the selection and need to try again, click the "New" button.
  6. When you are happy with your clipping, press the second button to save the screen shot as an image file.

on the top right of your keyboard, there is a key that says "prt sc", "prt scrn", or something similar.

then go to paint (start, all programs, accessories, paint) and paste it there (Ctrl + V OR "edit", "paste")
