The right screenshot combination shortcuts are "Alt+Fn+PrtScn", you can try it to take a screenshot and then paste it in Word or Paint. If it still fails to work, or you may feel it's a little bit troublesome to press three buttons at the same time and use additional program to edit it, then you can use Snipping Tool to do the screenshot and add some annotations. It's quite simple to use. Surefire Ways to Screenshot on Dell

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 do I print screen on lenovo t61p?


I use the combination of pressing <Ctrl>+<Fn>+<Print Screen> to copy the screen capture to the clipboard. The Ctrl and Fn keys are adjacent in the lower left hand corner of the keyboard (just left of the Windows key). The Print Screen button is the key to the farthest to the right on the top-most row of keys (look for the blue paper + printer icon).

Next open Paint. (Start > Accessories > Paint). Then choose Paste from the left hand side of the ribbon. (There is a down arrow which gives Paste or Paste From options. Just use the Paste.)
Now crop the screen capture if desired and then click on File > Print > Print. Then select your printer and press Print.

Nearly any image editor will work after the screen capture is in the clipboard.

I hope this helps.

PRINT screen


Yes, There is key marked PrtSc. It copies to the whole screen to the clipboard. The combination ALT +PrtSC copies the active window.
After you copy the whole screen or the Active window, open Paint or an image editor and Paste the contents of the clipboard in the Paint window, and save under the format you want.
There are free software on the web to copy your screen, One of the best is PickPick. Just when you install it make sure you uncheck all boxes that will install search bars, or additional software.

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.

On previoius Dell products ALT-PRNT SCREEN used to capture the active window this does not seem to be an option on the E4310. How do I capture an active window?


Check if you have to press the fn (function) key on your laptop before pressing Print Screen, you can tell if they are both the same blue color.

When you press ALT+Print Screen, you only capture the active window, when you click print screen you capture the entire screen. Then you will have to press CTRL+V on your keyboard to paste into paint. If you have windows Vista, you can capture screen shots much more easily using the Snipping Tool included with Vista.


Here's a How to guide to refresh: (Ref: http://graphicssoft.about.com/cs/general/ht/winscreenshot.htm )
  1. Press the Print Screen key on your keyboard. It may be labeled [PrtScn].
  2. Open an image editing program, such as Microsoft Paint.
  3. Go to the Edit menu and choose Paste.
  4. If prompted to enlarge the image, choose Yes.
  5. Optional: Use your image editor's crop tool to crop out unnecessary portions of the screen shot.
  6. Go to the File Menu and choose Save As.
  7. Navigate to the folder where you want to save the image.
  8. Type a file name for the image.
  9. Select a file type.
  10. Click the Save button.
Tips:
  1. Hold the Alt key down while pressing Print Screen to capture only the active window.
  2. Generally the GIF format works best when saving screen shots of application windows. The JPEG format usually makes screen shots (especially those with text) blurry, blotchy and discolored.
  3. See related resources below for more screen shot tips and listings of screen capture software that offers many more options for capturing screens and portions of screens on Windows and Macintosh computers.
  4. The Windows "clipboard" is a term used to describe the temporary storage space in memory where an item is placed when you copy or cut. When you paste, the item is transferred to the program you're working in. If you copy something else, the old item is replaced with the new. You can't manipulate the clipboard directly; it's only used for copy and paste operations.
Good Luck

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!

Does not print screen


PrtScr does not make the screen print out on your printer.
It only copies the screen to your clipboard.

Press CTRL+PrtScr to copy entire screen to clipboard
Press ALT+PrtScr to copy active window to clipboard
Press CTRL+V to paste the contents of your clipboard into a document or image
Then you can print the document or image to your printer.

I hope this helps.

I cannot do a Print Screen with my Dell Latitude d610. I have tried all combinations of Ctrl+Prnt scrn and Fn+Prnt scrn. Any idea's?


Based on your keyboard layout, you don't need a key combination to capture your screen. Just press the "Print Scrn" button and your screen image will be copied to your clipboard. Now if you have pressed the "Print Scrn" key, go to MS Paint or any other image processing programs and "paste" it there.

Notice that your "Print Scrn" key is printed on top of the keyboard key and in white color. That means that it is the default key when pressed so there is no need to combine with Fn or shift. But if it is printed in blue or orange (your Fn key should be in blue or orange also) that is the time you need a key combination.

I want to use the print screen key on my Compaq Presario v2000. How do I get it to work?


This does not send direct to a printer. It sends it to the clipboard.

From there you can paste it into paint or another graphics program and print from there.
