The good old print screen key in Windows 7 still works the same as in older versions of Windows. It copies the whole screen as a picture. You can paste it into Paint, for example. Combined with alt it copies the active window in stead of the whole screen.
With me it's not ctrl+print (there's no 'print' key on my keyboard) nor function+print screen (there's no 'function' key on my keyboard, but there are 12 function keys named F1 to F12).
But I need to print shift to use the print screen function, because it's on upper half of a key (the lower half is labeled SysRq, just like I need to use shift to type a $ with the 4-key.
Your laptop keyboard might be different from the keyboard on my desktop.
Hi, I wanted to know how can take a screenshot quickly in windows 7 . I know there is built in "snipping" software, but using it all the time is cumbersome. There is supposedly a way if doing it by tapping "ctrl+print" or "function+print screen", but it never works.
There is an way of taking screen shots in Windows Phone and iOS. I wanted to know how to do so in the laptop.
