How to Take a Screenshot in Windows 10

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi Everyone,

I'm a Mac user and just got Windows and I need to take a screenshot and don't have any idea any help? I tried to print screen (Prt Scr) keys together to take a screenshot in Windows 10 but nothing happened.

What are you trying to do? The default Keybind should be the print Screen button.

When i have to take a screenshot on my Windows 10 laptop, i use: Windows key + Shift + S

Print Screen just copies the screen dump to the clipboard. You need to open a graphics program (even the bundled 'Paint' app in W 10) and 'paste' it in there

In keyboards I do have a Print Screen button, but do I have to download the snipping tools for that?

I have a PrtSc (Print Screen) button,  As you mentioned 'Paint' I open paint and press Ctrl + V to paste it in. and I don't know where the file went. So try Pres Alt + PrtSc to take a screenshot of only the highlighted application.

Snipping tool has been/is being replaced by snip and sketch.


Assuming the 'Mac User' bit refers to familiarity, and it is indeed windows 10 we're talking about. If Onedrive is signed in you can configure it to automatically save a screenshot direct to a file when the print screen key is pressed
