How to Print Screen

I tried to Google on how to Print Screen and found quite a number posting on it. Β However, I end up feeling more frustrated and confused… Until finally I figured it out… First, hold the button ‘fn’ on your laptop and click ‘insert/prt sc’ once. Then go to the Start button, All Programs, Accessories then click on Paint. Then click Edit & Paste.

However, you may not wish to save the whole image that appeared. I’m not very well versed with Paint but this is how I do it. Click on the rectangular shape on the left side. Then select the portion that you wish to save, click Edit and Cut. Then click File, New. A message whether you want to save the present image will appear. I do not wish to save that, so I click No. Then click Paste and Save As, whatever name you choose.

Hope this helps and you are welcome to comment if you know a better way of doing this… πŸ™‚

    I use Firefox add-ons for screen shot named “Fireshot” so that I can take a screen shot for the entire page as well as the part that shows on my browser window. πŸ™‚ Windows OS on mac has different shortcut for print screen though as well as OS X. I don’t know about Linux since I haven’t tried it. Have you tried it, Ruzie?

      Oh, yes… Forgot to mention that this is for Windows XP laptop. I haven’t tried any other, Lusy. And I’m using Chrome browser. Will see if Chrome has that Fireshot add-on too & will give it a try. Thank you so much, Lusy! πŸ˜‰

        Have tried using the ‘Fireshot’ & yesss, it is very easy to use. However, it’s only on Firefox browser & presently not available for Chrome.

    • Ruziha Osman says:

      Thanks for the kind words & info. Got to admit this is the first time I heard of K-Meleon browser though. Have you tried with Firefox or Chrome?
