1.How to take screen shots on Laptops, Computers, PC and Microsoft windows
Involves three simple steps,
- Just press the print screen button on your key boad. This will comprehensively capture and copy the image of your entire screen on the clipboard with the image having the same resolution of your desktop screen. This button could be labeled as ‘PTRSC,’ ‘PrtScn,’ ‘Prnt Scrn,’ or any other name of a similar calibar. However, on Laptops and some computers, you may have to use the Fn key (Functional key) and print screen key so that the combination takes a screen shot on your laptop. Put in Mind that you will not be notified that a screen shot has been taken.
- The next step is to paste the image you captured and copied on the clipboard into a program in order to see the image. I would recomment you paste the image into a Paint file. Open the paint program by checking the accessories in the Start menu for windows 7 users. On windows 8 you can just search directly for paint. Now with a blank new canvas open, press CTRL+V tp paste the image and view it. You can also go to edit menu and select paste or just right click on the empty canvas and click paste.
- Save the image. Click on file, then save as, select the name of your choice and the file type of the image whether to save as JPG or PNG or any other.
