  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.

What is a screenshot


A "screenshot" is a snapshot of what's on your computer's screen.
  1. The first step is to create the windows that you want to capture and leave them up on the screen.
  2. Just to the right of your keyboard, you should see three groups of keys. The lower set of keys usually is a group of arrow keys. Above that is usually a set of some six keys that are labeled "Insert," "Home," "Page Up," etc. Above that should be three keys that have rather odd labels - like Pause/Break and ScrLk. One of those keys should be labeledPrtScrn/SysRq. Pressing Alt-PrintScreen (Alt-PrtScrn) places an image of the frontmost window on the clipboard. Pressing PrintScreen by itself places an image of the entiredesktop on the clipboard.
  3. If you press PrtScrn/SysRq, nothing will appear to have happened. However, your computer just took a snapshot of its screen and stored that picture on its clipboard, much as it stores information that you cut and paste.
  4. Open MS-Paint. (From Start/Run, issue the command "mspaint".) Create a new empty image, and use Edit/Paste to bring in the screenshot you just took. (If the screenshot is smaller than the default Paint canvas, you will end up with white areas. Start over: create a new empty image, change its dimensions to 1x1, and Paste again. The canvas will grow for the Paste, but it doesn't shrink.)
  5. Use MS-Paint to Save As, using PNG as the file format (it is superior to all the rest
  6. God bless you

Try <alt> printscreen. Also the snipping tool in Vista and 7 will do better than print screen.

Welcome to FixYa!

To use the printscreen function of your laptop do the following:

1. Press the "Printscreen" key (or "Fn" key and "Printscreen" key if it is written in color blue).
2. Open MS-Paint (Click start, programs, accessories, paint)
3. Press "ctrl" and letter "v" to paste the captured screen.
4. You can save the captured screen as an image (jpg, gif, bmp) or you can print it.

Authorware Printscreen doesnt print actual document fullsize


Try printing document thru your printer rather than Printscreen feature. Or Printscreen feature copies to clip board which you should be able to open and paste to new document then use your printer set up to adjust. Make sure your printer set up is set to scale to fit page.

Printscreen will not print


In the old DOS days, Print Screen would send a copy of the screen to the printer.

In Windows, Print Screen sends a copy to the Clip Board.
So, what you need to do is open an application like WordPad, MS Word, Paint or some other program and Paste to a new file. Then you can print the image from that file.

A side note: The PrintScreen key captures the whole screen, the ALT-PrintScreen key combination captures only the active window.
