How To Take a Screenshot on a PC

Taking a screenshot of your screen can be very useful in showing someone what you see on your screen without setting up a screen sharing program.

Below are instructions for the PC. Click here for Mac instructions.

Step 1: Locate the "Print Screen" key on your keyboard (normally on the upper right near the number pad). It may be abbreviated as "Prt Scr".

  • Press "Print Screen" to take a screenshot of your entire screen.
  • Hold "Alt" and press "Print Screen" to take a screenshot of the frontmost window.

The screenshot is saved to the Clipboard. If you want to save the screenshot to a file, proceed with steps 2 - 4.

Step 2: In the Start menu, find and open Paint or another image editor. For Windows XP and earlier, Paint is located in the Accessories folder.

Step 3: In the Paint window, go to the Edit menu and click Paste to paste your screenshot on a blank canvas.

Step 4: Go to the File menu and click Save to save the screenshot on your computer.

Happy screenshooting.
