How To Take A Screenshot?

Postby Kanan » Mon Oct 09, 2017 9:37 pm

I have a Lenovo Ideapad Z585 and it's running Windows 8.
I sometimes take a screenshot without even knowing it and it saves in my Screenshots folder immediately.
The printscreen copies it, because it doesn't save directly to the folder.
How do I save a just-taken screenshot into the Screenshots folder? I remember I pressed the Windows key or Ctrl key with combinations...

You press the key on your keyboard that says "PrtScn".
That captures the entire screen.

If you use the Ctrl key along with it, you can capture only the active window.

The other answer works. But there is a much, much easier way to take a screenshot. Go to the startmenu, and look up "Snipping Tool" That's how you take a screenshot :D
