How To Take ScreenShot On Laptop, Win7,Win8,Win10,And Xp

A screenshot (also sometimes called a ‘screen grab’, ‘screen dump’ or ‘capture’) is a bit like taking a photograph of whatever is currently on your screen, which could be a website, a window or just the desktop. The image can then be pasted into a word-processed document
Step 1Press the ‘Print screen’ key: Prt Sc or PrtScn. This is usually on the top row of the keyboard. When you press this, you’ll be taking a screenshot of the desktop. On some laptop keyboards, if the Prt Sc text is on the top line of a button, you will need to press and hold the Shift key and then press Prt 

Step 2: Immediately open a new Word document and click the ‘Paste’ icon, or hold down Ctrl on the keyboard and press V.  Your screenshot will now appear as an image in your document.

Step 3You can also take a screenshot of just the active window. To do this, hold down Alt while you press Prt Sc or PrtScn.

Step 4You can resize your screenshot. Click on it and a frame will appear around the outside with small ‘handles’ on the corners and sides. You can change the size of the image by dragging on one or more of these handles with your mouse, making sure that the left mouse button is pressed down.

Step 5: Your screenshot can be treated the same as any other inserted image. When you click on it, two new ‘picture tools’ tabs will appear in the ‘ribbon’. These give you a number of formatting options, such as cropping and special effects.

1. Arrange your windows to match your preference if you want to take a picture of your entire screen. If you want to take a screenshot of just one window, click the program's tab on the taskbar to make it active.
2. Press "Prt Sc" to take a screenshot of the the entire screen. Alternatively, press "Alt-Prt Sc" to take a screenshot of just the active window.
3. Click "Start | All Programs | Accessories | Paint" to open the Paint program.
4. Click "Paste" to paste the screenshot into Paint. The image size automatically adjusts to match the screenshot size.
5. Press "Ctrl-S." Choose a file name and save location. Click "Save" to save your screenshot.
