How to Print Screen on Windows

If you do not want to print a screen with a printer but want to save a file of the screen for future reference, you can use your PrtSc key to capture a screen shot.  This comes in handy when you want to save any sort of confirmation screen and do not have a printer available.

To get a screenshot using your PrtSc key:

click on a blank part of the screen you want to capture
click on the shift and PrtSc keys if PrtSc is on the top of the key
(Try fn+prtsc if PrtSc is on the bottom of the key in gray)

This will put the screen you want to capture onto your clipboard
Open the Paint program 
(Start then Search for *Paint* should do it if you cannot find it)
then click on *paste* (your screen should appear on Paint)

Save the file (click on upper left corner of Paint for saving options)
