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

To print screen shots the most effective method is:
1) press and hold the control (ctrl) key
2) press the print screen (prt scr) once
3) open a graphics program
4) press control and hold and press 'c' to insert the image
5) print or save the image

Good luck, I hope this helps.

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.

I cannot get the print screen function to work. I have no FN button or FN lock button to which everyone is referring. I have 3 different keyboards and none have these buttons. I have a Microsoft...

I don't think that the print screen key actually sends the current screen to the printer to print out. It used to do this way back when. What it does do though is capture the screen, which you can then paste into something like MS Paint or Photoshop or even MS Word. If you press just the "Print Screen" key on it's own, no function keys or shift or anything else, it will capture the entire screen. If you hold down the "Alt" key then press the "Print Screen" key, it will capture whatever window you have in focus at that point. So to capture just an error box message for example, you click in it with the mouse to make sure it's the active window (not grayed out title bar) then hold "Alt" press "Print Screen" then release the "Alt" key. You can then paste that into an image or word document by right clicking the mouse and selecting paste, or by holding down the "Ctrl" key and pressing V.

I hope this is what you were wanting to figure out when you were talking about the print screen key, and hopefully this will have helped you and cleared up a few things. :-)

I'm tring to use a print screen to send out a report and I cant remember how to insert the print screen

The way I do it is to save the window image by pressing print screen and then pasting the saved image into Paintbrush. You can save it as a jpg instead of a bmp, if you like. Then you simply attach the saved image file to your email.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

Problem with keyboard or input of certain keys

hi.. is that a bi-lingual keyboard that you purchased? If so, what model? If that's a toshiba laptop w/ a bi-lingual keyboard, press the left (shift+ctrl) buttons for 10-15secs then release it. You should be able to bring back the normal function of your keyboard. If your having problems pressing the "n" key and it replaces it with a number on the screen when you type it, it's most likely that you enabled the "num lock" function of your keyboard, on Toshiba press FN+F11, on Dell FN+F11 also i think, it may differ on other models, sometimes FN+ Print Screen or Pause (above F11).

Hope this helps.
