Re: screen printing

Use the print screen key on your keyboard. Might need shift, and works a little bit different if you press alt at the same time (should be window in stead of screen).
Then the screenprint is on the clipboard.

Paste it into any application you like (Paint, Irfanview, Word, Photoshop) to manipulate and print it.

There are some nice programs offering some more functionality than this basic one. Try

Hope this helps.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
