Get a quick snapshot of that strange message, impressive score, or broken software.
THERE ARE TIMES WHEN YOU NEED TO TAKE A PICTURE OF WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOUR DEVICE, THAT WEIRD TEXT YOU RECEIVED, OR PROOF OF YOUR AMAZING HIGH SCORE IN A GAME.
Knowing how to take a screenshot will allow you to convey things more briefly. Every operating system comes with a built-in feature for screen capture. Some even let you take a screenshot that scrolls or choose certain areas. We’ll describe how to do this in this short article.
On a Windows laptop or desktop, hit the Print Screen keyboard key to take a screenshot (usually abbreviated to Prt Scn or similar). Press the Alt and Print Screen keys simultaneously to just take a snapshot of the currently open window.
The automatically copied screenshot must be pasted into Microsoft Paint, Photoshop, or another image editing programme before it can be edited and saved.
Try hitting Windows, Shift, and S simultaneously in Windows 10 if you only want to capture a section of the screen. Once you’ve selected the portion you wish to capture, you can click and drag to highlight it.
The Snipping Tool, which can be accessed by clicking Start and typing “snipping tool” in the search bar, can be used to accomplish the same task in earlier versions of Windows.
The snapshot is once more copied to your clipboard so that you can paste it.
Press the Windows key and the Print Screen key simultaneously to take screenshots and have them saved automatically. The Pictures folder in your computer stores screenshots in a folder called Screenshots.
