How do i use the boxed options on certain keys?


Prt SC (Print Screen) does NOT send the screen to the printer!!
If your windows desktop is showing, Print Screen will capture the ENTIRE screen to the clipboard - Open Paint and Ctrl-V to paste the captured image into paint (or other graphics program).
If you want to capture only the active screen, use Alt-Prt Sc and do the same with it.
Take screen capture print your screen Windows Help

Why doesn't my print screen button work?


Hi

The PrtSc (Print Screen) key when pressed will seem to do nothing but it does when you hit the key it puts a copy of your current screen to the clipboard.

To prove this do as below

1 press the Prtsc button on your desktop
2 Load paint and choose new
3 go to the paste option or press CTRL+V and you should get a copy of your desktop in paint.

Please see attached photo, this is what's


what are you trying to do ?
a bit more information might be able to help you.
IE: what are you doing when this (pop up) occurs ?
and why are striking the F1 or F2 keys ?

Computer keyboards contain keys that, when pressed on their own or in conjunction with another key, provide shortcuts to performing functions, saving time and keystrokes.
On most keyboards, these are the function, or "F," keys that run along the top of the keyboard. "F1" and "F2" are members of this group.
F1 Function Key

Pressing the "F1" function key while you are in an application will bring up the application's help file.
Pressing it when you are not in Windows Explorer or on the desktop produces the "Windows Help" file.
If you are in an application and press the "F1" button along with the Windows button, you will get the "Windows Help" file.

F1 Function Key Combined With Other Keys
"F1" can be pressed with other keys to gain a variety of results and functions.
Press "F1" and the "Shift" key to start context sensitive help, or help for the application.
Use the "F1" key with "Alt" to go to the next field in an application.
Press "F1," "Shift" and "Alt" at the same time to return to the previous field in an application.
To display the Microsoft system information, press "Ctrl," "Alt" and "F1" at the same time.

F2 Function Key Clicking on an icon on your desktop and pressing the "F2" function key will put the icon into rename mode in the same way as right-clicking on the icon and scrolling to "Rename."
F2 Function Key Combined With Other Keys
"F2" when pressed with other keys combines functions commonly found in the application "File" and "Edit" menus.
To copy selected text, highlight the text and press "Shift" with "F2."
To view a print preview of a document, press "Ctrl" with "F2" when in a document.
To save a document, press "Alt," "Shift" and "F2 together when in the application.
To choose the open file command, press "Ctrl," "Alt" and "F2."

I cannot get the print screen function to work. I have no FN button or FN lock button to which everyone is referring. I have 3 different keyboards and none have these buttons. I have a Microsoft...


I don't think that the print screen key actually sends the current screen to the printer to print out. It used to do this way back when. What it does do though is capture the screen, which you can then paste into something like MS Paint or Photoshop or even MS Word. If you press just the "Print Screen" key on it's own, no function keys or shift or anything else, it will capture the entire screen. If you hold down the "Alt" key then press the "Print Screen" key, it will capture whatever window you have in focus at that point. So to capture just an error box message for example, you click in it with the mouse to make sure it's the active window (not grayed out title bar) then hold "Alt" press "Print Screen" then release the "Alt" key. You can then paste that into an image or word document by right clicking the mouse and selecting paste, or by holding down the "Ctrl" key and pressing V.

I hope this is what you were wanting to figure out when you were talking about the print screen key, and hopefully this will have helped you and cleared up a few things. :-)

Cannot save Window screen image with Alt-PrtScr


if there is an 'fn' key on your keyboard then your combo would be
fn+prtsc+alt - to capture top windows and fn+prtsc to capture entire screen
If however your prt sc key is combined with another key and written on top then you need to use
shift+prt sc + alt to capture top windows and shift+prtsc to capture entire screen

Using the print screen button


When you use the Alt Print Screen button then you need to place it onto a word document in order to print it. Open up word and select to paste the frame into your word document and then print it out.
