SOURCE: How do I get the PrtScn key to print the screen?

Download this utility that will make PrtScr easier to do:
Once installed, Purrint places an icon on the system tray, though I'd say it's more comfortable to use with the keyboard itself. Now, every time you press the PrtScr key (or the Alt+PrtScr shortcut to capture the active window) a window will open and offer you the possibility to copy the image to the clipboard (as the standard key would do), save it as an image file or send it to your printer right away.

SOURCE: prtscn and sysrq button together, how to paste to paint

Hi,
The best way to save your screenshot and open it in paint is to hit the Prt Scr key, open paint and you can either right click and paste or click on file in the top left and paste.
To save the shot click on file, save or save as.



Regards.

How can I take a screenshot on my laptop computer

What laptop?
What Operating System?

In windowss you can use the "Print Screen" function by pressing the "PrtScn" key on an extended keyboard. If you hold the "Alt"-key while pressing the PrtScn-key, it takes a snapshot of the currently active window.

Then you have to open a paint or Word document. Now you can paste the screenshot.

If you use Windows 7, click the Start button and type "Snipping Tool". This will start the built-in screenshot software.

    • 8 Click "Start" in the lower left of the taskbar. Navigate to "Applications" and choose the Microsoft Paint program.

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

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

Where is the print screen button on a Acer Aspire 4730 laptop computer??

Your laptop keyboard should have a print screen key (look for PRTSCN). If you still can't find it, you may use a screen capture app such as this one: http://www.mirekw.com/winfreeware/mwsnap.html

Yes - the PrintScreen button is really mis-named.

You can find programs that do a far better job of capture screen images. Like this one.. http://www.etrusoft.com/
