How To Take Screenshots On PC.

There are a couple of ways of taking screenshots on Windows depending on your preferences. Each differs when it comes to capturing the entire screen or a some part thereof.

How to Take An Image of Your Entire Screen on PC ?

Using keyboard shortcuts we will capture all visible areas of your screen on a Windows computer. That includes all windows you have open as well as the taskbar.

To do this you simply hit the PrtSc button (Near he top right corner of the keyboard). This will copy your screenshot to the clipboard. From there you can then paste (Ctrl+V)or(Right click-> Paste) the screenshot and modify or share it in whatever way you choose.

A variation on this is to hold PrtScn and the Windows Key. Doing this will then copy your screenshot to the file directory [User]\Pictures\Screenshots. Again, this enables you to easily capture the whole screen

Here you have a few options. Alt+PrtScn (+Fn when on laptops) will capture an image of your active window/program.

Windows Key+Shift+S, brings up the “snipping bar”. This enables you to select an area of your screen to capture and save it to the clipboard. The Snipped image can be pasted (Ctrl+V)or(Right click-> Paste) into any compatible program like Word, Paint Excel Outlook etc.
