Why do some prints have a greenish skin tone after appearing normal on computer screen?


Color laser printers, especially the big high end office printers, have the color capabilities you need for printing the company logo and the occasional Excel pie chart - but they are truly bad for printing photos.
But the good news is that almost any of the current generation of ink jet printers, even the cheap ones, are pretty good at printing photos - but only if you print in the printer's high quality setting on photo paper, if you use the cheap office paper you will get the same desaturated colors you got at the office.
Now, the colors in print will never be the same as on screen, especially the brightness (because the screen is a light source and he paper isn't) but you can get good results results, here are the options depending on how accurate you want the colors to be:
1. Just print in high quality on photo paper
If you like the way colors look an screen right out of camera and you never calibrated your screen than it's likely you won't notice the problem from uncalibrated printer (but it will never be the same as on screen).
This should be good enough for most people and will probably match the results you get when you get the photos printed in cheap labs.
2. Calibrate your monitor
If you're serious about getting the right colors you first need to make sure what you see on screen is really what's in the file, this will probably get you predictable results (that is, the difference between screen and printer will be predictable and you can learn to compensate).
There are several systems that will let you calibrate monitors, some are not very expensive.
This should be enough for most serious hobbyists and pros
3. Use name brand paper that has profiles available
The next step is to use good paper and get printer profiles for that paper you are using.
4. Calibrate your printer
The next step is to get a device that can calibrate both your screen and your specific printer with the specific printer you are using.
Those are definitely not cheap and this should be good enough for everyone.
5. Know when to stop
This rabbit hole goes very deep, if you want truly accurate color you might find yourself in a black shirt (to avoid reflection) in a room with gray walls and special balanced lights (to avoid color casts) manually adjusting color space conversions.

Please tell me how to Print screen on a Microsoft ARC keyboard. There is a print screen above the Home button in blue but NO function button?


Actually there is no separate PrtScn key on the Arc keyboard. The print screen is a Function key combo.

Fn + Home

To capture the active window only it is Alt + Fn + Home

How do i do print screen on my netbook then open it to look at?


Hi, if you would like to print all what apears on your screen at a given moment you can use the print screen function, you will need to hold the F or Fn key while you click on the print screen key, once you done that, all the information on your screen is copied into the clip board and you will need to paste it into an image, use paints or any other graphic software and start new image then paste into it... the new image will be set exactly to your screen resolution and you can adjust to what you like... you can now print from within the graphic program by going into the menu and selecting to print.... This treck is good only if you want to print ALL what is on the screen including your program borders and you task bar, etc... best of luck

Good day, I would like to know what are the keys to do print screen with that keyboard, as the PrtScn button doesn't seem to work when pushed alone. Actually, I'm not able to do any print screen with this...


After you press PRINT-SCREEN,
click Start.
Click All Programs.
Click Accessories.
Open Paint.
Click Edit.
Click Paste.
The image that you "printed" will can be manipulated, and eventually printed, using the 'Paint' program.

press 'print screen'
then open 'start menu'
open paint (go to 'run' and type 'msconfig' (without quotes) and press enter)
then paste your image to the new file and print or save it!!!!
GOOD LUCK AND PLS RATE THIS POST!!!

How to use print screen feature


njt46,

Print screen will take a screenshot of whatever you have showing on your computer (Minus the cursor), and save it to clipboard.

To use Print Screen:
Simply press the key labelled "PRT SC" or "PRINT SCREEN" (or, if you're using a laptop, you will often have to hold the "FN" key and then press the "PRT SC" or "PRINT SCREEN" key).

Then open your favorite image editing program (Windows comes loaded with MS Paint), click on "Edit" at the top, and select "Paste" (Windows 7 users can just click on "Paste" on the far left of the ribbon). Then, simply save the file, and you're good to go!

Hope this helps.

Print screen doesn´t work


If the print screen button doesn't work, try to use Alt + Print Screen. If that doesn't work either, then try to re-install the software that came with your keyboard (if there is).

However, for most multi-media keyboards and mice, the CD that comes with them usually made to program the special buttons only. But I'm not sure in your case. There could be an option for you to re-program the buttons on your end, including the Print Screen button.

But if there's no way to re-program it and the Alt + Print Screen didn't help, then you may want to send the keyboard to the reseller or manufacturer for repair. It's a hardware defect.

Thank you and good luck!

How do I start printing material shown on monitor?


Do want to "print the screen"? On the upper right on your keyboard there is a Print Screen button. When you want to capture a picture of the screen you are looking at, press Print Screen. Now you have a picture of the screen in memory. To print it, you have to run a program like Word or Excel or Wordpad or Paint, or almost any other editing program. Once you are ii, click on Edit and then click Paste. Your picture will appear for you to print. Good Luck.
