Although there are many tools available for taking a screenshot, Windows has an built-in process that allows users to take a screenshot with a single button. Take a copy of the screen on your computer by using the Print Screen button, then paste the image into a program.
- Press the Print Screen key
In order to capture or copy the screen, press the Print Screen key. It may be labeled as "PrtScn" on some laptops.
- Open the application where screenshot is to be pasted
After copying the screen, the user needs to paste the content into an application. The screenshot can be pasted into a document, an image, a presentation or some other application.
- Paste the content
After opening the application, paste the content of the clipboard by holding down the Ctrl key and then pressing the V key. Crop the image as needed, and save the file.
