Take a screen shot (print your screen)
Sometimes it's simpler to show someone what's on your screen than it is to explain it. Windows makes it easy to take a picture of the screen so you can save, print, or share it. This is referred to as taking a screen shot or screen capture.
You can take a screen shot and automatically save it as a file, take a screen shot without saving it as a file, or take a screen shot of only one window (instead of the whole screen).
Tap or click the window you want to capture.
A picture of the window is copied and you can paste it wherever you'd like.
On some keyboards, PrtScn might appear as PrtSc or a similar abbreviation.
Certain laptops and other devices lack a PrtScn key or might use a different key combination to take screen shots. Check the manual that came with your laptop or device for more info.
Another way to capture a picture of part of the screen is to use the Windows Snipping Tool. To learn more, see Use Snipping Tool to capture screen shots.
