    How do you use the Print Screen option on your keyboard?

    I used to know but I can't remember for the life of me how to do it now when I need it.:eek:

    I need to make a snap shot of what's on the monitor screen.

    hit print screen

    open windows paint

    hit paste, and save file (or print it)

    and alt-printscreen captures the current window instead of the whole desktop.

    Alt + PrtScn is the hotkey combo and it lets you paste the active window into most any app by using Ctrl + V.
