Is there another word on that Print Screen key? If so, you need to press Fn + Print Screen keys to take a screenshot. In Windows 8, the full-screen screenshot will be automatically saved to the Pictures library. In Windows 7, you need to go to Paint, and paste the screenshot on the blank board and save it as an image. If this doesn't solve your problem, just use a third-party tool Apowersoft Screen Capture Pro . This tool allows you to capture any region on the screen and provides many other useful functions like image editing and sharing.

What keys do I use for print screen

What are the keys to print screen?
Print screen (often abbreviated Print Scrn, Prnt Scrn, Prt Scrn, Prt Scn, Prt Scr, Prt Sc or Pr Sc) is a key present on most PC keyboards. It is typically situated in the same section as the break key and scroll lock key.

Print screen - Wikipedia

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Print_screen Search for: What are the keys to print screen?Copy only the image of the active window
  • Click the window that you want to copy.
  • Press ALT+PRINT SCREEN. Important: The text you see on your keyboard might be PrtSc, PrtScn, or PrntScrn. ...
  • Paste (CTRL+V) the image into a Microsoft Office program or other application.

What is the Print Screen key on my keyboad used for?

If you used computers back in the 80's (DOS days) you probably remember using the Print Screen key on your keyboard to print a copy of whatever was on the monitor screen at that time on your printer. It wasn't used that much because back in those days it took forever for a dot matrix printer to print out the entire monitor screen. However, it came in handy once and awhile.<br />Today, many people just glance at the Print Screen key (and wonder what it's there for), and some hit the key and when nothing happens they just forget about it.<br />Well, Microsoft didn't forget about it at all. They turned it into a "Snapshot key" which, as that term implies, takes a snapshot of the monitor screen. <br />Microsoft doesn't really highlight the fact that a user, after taking a snapshot of the screen, can easily save and/or print that snapshot using paint.<br />After taking the snapshot, in Windows XP simply click on Start, All Programs, Accessories and Paint. Then click on Edit followed by Paste and Voila! There's your screen snapshot in living color staring you in the face! This same capability exists in other versions of Windows, however the key-stroke sequence differs.<br />Now you can click on File, Save As, and save it with a .jpg/tif extension (etc.) and/or send it to your printer using File, Print.<br /><br />Perhaps Microsoft tried to get the keyboard manufacturers to change the name of the key from Print Screen to Snapshot, but I guess we will be stuck with the keyboad Print Screen label forever.<br /><br />Anyway, the Print Screen key is a much more functional tool under Windows than it ever was

I am using Lenovo Y550 laptop. I want to use the Print Screen command but unfortunately there is no Print Screen key in this laptop. Could anyone please help me with regards to this issue. Thanks.

Most laptops do not have a dedicated print screen key, but instead have a function key (lower left of the keyboard, with some abbreviation of the word "function" on a key in a different color than the writing on the rest of the keys). Once you find the function key, look at the writing on the other keys that is the same color as the writing on the function key. One of those "other color" labels will be for print screen, and to use it, you hold down the function key at the same time as you push whatever key says print screen in the other color.

Dell Keyboard Model: SK-8115 - Print Screen key does not work... when I press the Print Screen key nothing happens. Tried all combinations using Alt Ctrl... etc.

Pressing print screen itself does nothing noticeably. To capture your screen press ctrl + print screen or just print screen. Open up paint or a word document and paste it into it by pressing ctrl + v. An image of the previous screen capture should appear.

How do i use the prt scr button

Whatever happened to the Print Screen key??
If you did computers back in the 80's (DOS days) you probably remember using the Print Screen key on your keyboard to print a copy of whatever was on the monitor screen at that time to your printer. It wasn't used that much because back in those days it took forever for a dot matrix printer to print out the entire monitor screen. However, it came in handy once and awhile.
Microsoft has turned the key into into a "Snapshot key" which, as that term implies, takes a snapshot of the monitor screen.
After taking the snapshot, in XP simply click on Start, All Programs, Accessories and Paint. Then click on Edit followed by Paste and Voila! There's your screen snapshot in living color staring you in the face!
Now you can use "Save As" and save it with a .jpg/tif extension (etc.) and/or send it to your printer using File, Print.
If your keyboard Print Screen key performs more than one function you will have to experiment a little to get it the key to perform the Print Screen Function. Try holding down the ALT, SHIFT, or CTRL key (or any "special" keys unique to your keyboard) when you hit the Print Screen key in order to get the key to perform its Print Screen function.

Print Screen Function

On the top row, on the right hand side, second from the left, there should be a Print Screen key (Print Screen / SysRq). Just press that key once - it should give you a PrintScreen.
