    Press the "Print Screen" ( Prt Scr) key on your keyboard. This will capture an image of your entire screen and copy it to the clipboard.

    Paste the screenshot. Once you’ve made the screenshot, you will need to paste it to a program in order to see it. The most common way to paste it is into a Paint file. This will allow you to save it as an image file that can be transferred to others.

    Save a full-screen screenshot directly to a file in Windows 8. When you press ⊞ Win+⎙ PrtScr, you will save a full-screen screenshot directly to a file without having to paste it into another program first. The file is saved to the Screenshots folder in your Pictures folder. If the Screenshots folder does not exist, Windows will create one.

    The picture is saved in PNG format.Screenshots are automatically labeled "Screenshot", and a number will appear in parentheses for each consecutive screenshot.

    Taking a screen shot is very easy, just press PrintScreen button from your keyboard, and the snapshot of your current screen is taken automatically by the system, then you can save this snap as per your location in the system and if it does not asks you to save the picture then you can find the taken snapshot in the pictures folder of the system.

    If you have a mac, you hold down the shift and command keys, and then hit the "3" at the same time. I don't know how to do it on Windows, but you can look it up.

    Right above "Backspace" on the key board is a key that says"PrtScn".. Hit that, go to a NEW word page, paste it, then either send it to yourself or print it.. Good Luck!
