Why doesn't my print screen button work?


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.

Print screen not working panasonic toughbook

On any Panasonic Toughbook: The PrtSc or Print Screen key will not print the screen directly. The trick is to use "Shift" + "PrtSc" which will then "capture" an image of the screen.
Then you open the Paint program and then with the cursor in the middle of the blank screen you press the "Paste" button. This will cause the image that you just captured to be displayed in the Paint program. You can now save this image as a BMP or as a JPG image. It can now also be printed.

Good Luck.

I need instructions for using the print screen feature on my L755. I have tried using only "PRTSC" and also have tried "ALT + PRTSC", going to paint, but it will not paste to clipboard.

You should only need to use the 'print screen' key (make sure you have everything you want showing on your screen), then go into your paint programme and press the CTL and v keys at the same time, it should then paste it in. Hope this helps.

Print screen key

print screen key functions differently in different makers in different laptops. I think, in HP if you just press the prtsc key it copies the screen on to the clipboard, then you can just go tto a image app and paste it there. Other makers like Dell and Lenovo would require you to press a combination of Ctrl+Shift+prtsc. Only then the image will be copied to the clipboard.

Trying to use the Prtsc key on a Acer 3680 laptop. It is not working, can the PrtSc key be setup to print screens.

If you use SHIFT-PRTSC, Windows should save the current screen to the Clipboard. You can then Paste this into a program like MS Paint, PaintShopPro, etc., and print it from there.

What does the key with the letters PrtSc SysRq on an acer aspire do (whats its function)

if you hit just the prtsc sysrq button and open up a blank paint document, you can paste an entire screenshot into a picture document. if you hit control alt prtsc (It's short for print screen) you can take a screenshot of just the current window.

Please give me 4 thumbs if this helped!

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
