Capture a Screen Shot in Windows (Print Screen Button)

 Capture a Screen Shot in Windows (Print Screen Button) :

There are many ways to capture a Screen Shot like an image in all Windows systems but the most easy and classical way is with using the Print Screen button on your PC keyboard. This is a very interesting command that for me personally many times helped in the work and is probably familiar to most of people which using computer in everyday work but for you who do not know about it just follow the next steps :

Step 1 : Find at your keyboard Print Screen button and then press it once. Usually this button is situated in the same section as the break key and scroll lock key but depending on the style may be located elsewhere.

Step 2 : Open program Paint. If you do not have Paint on your desktop you can find it easy with following this direction : Windows Start > All Programs > Accessories > Paint (this direction is most common for Windows XP on other versions of Windows it can be placed in a different location).

Step 3 : When window of Paint is open press Ctrl+V at your PC keyboard or simply do right click and then from offered choices select Paste.

Step 4 : Your picture is now at Paint program screen but you still need to save it somewhere. To do that go on File > Save As... and save image in any format you like (.jpeg is the best for internet upload but .bmp have a best quality). There is always an option of downloading some Capturing Screen Software which will allow you more options for different situations.
