    some times (unsure what you keyboard lay out is) num lock can prevent on certain laptops

    if the print scr key is blue (mines blue under insert) you'll need the fn key to use it but with it being a mini laptop is there blues numbers as well if so turn off num lock (whilst pressing fn) then try prnt srcn again, if this doesn't work then i'm sorry

    Press the "Print demonstrate" (prt scrm) on your keyboard a million- After pressing the Print demonstrate Key, open the Paint utility in initiate/All courses/ upload-ons/Paint 2- From the menu bar pass to image/Attributes 3- in the sector such as Width type in 800 and 600 in top/ok 4- From the menu bar, pass to Edit and click Paste. you will now see a reproduction of the contents of your demonstrate once you pressed the Print demonstrate key 5- From the menu bar pass to record and then click Print. in case you opt to maintain the screenshot, click save good day
