How to use the Print Screen function?

I've seen various descriptions of how to use the print screen function.

It would be nice to actually tell one that works.  None have worked for me.

[Fn] and Prt SCr does not work.

CTRL and Prt SCr does not work.

CTRL, Alt, and Prt SCr does not work.

[Fn], Ctrl and Prt SCr does not work.

If anyone knows the correct method to activate the screen capture function which would be a good thing.

From the looks of things, HP has a big problem with this function.

Here's a microsoft articleon the use of the screenshot function.

This should answer your questions.

Thanks for taking a peek.

  • How to find the print screen prints.

    I know how to do screen printing, but where can I find plans? I need to send one to a software support technician.

    Thank you!

    When you press the print screen button, the screenshots are not saved anywhere, but are copied to the Clipboard.

    You must go to a photo app as (even paint will do), then 'paste' (ctrl + v) the contents of the Clipboard.

    You can also use a screen capture tool, like the App "Extract tool" built in Windows 7 (and maybe 8, idk)

  • Problems with the print screen function

    I have 2 PCs, one with a monitor 17' and the other with a 24 "monitor: I use the screen function print on both the PC with a 17 '' monitor prints normally, but the one with the 24" print screen WIDE, is it possible I can do the PC with the monitor 24 "print normally as the monitor 17" don't?

    Hi David,

    Please contact the Microsoft community. We will be happy to help you with your concern.

    According to the description, screenshot image is large and you want to get it in normal size. Am I wrong?

    Screenshot should give a 1:1 copy of the screen, you can check the zoom value, but it will be set to 1 x when you open it.

    Please send us a screenshot of the screen so that we can check that the size and let you know.

    Thank you

  • How to use the external screen with my Satellite M30?

    Hi guys, I have the following problem:

    I have a portable Satellite M30-642 former. My keyboard it is completely broken (spilled something on it) so I use an external USB keyboard.

    Now that I bought a TFT I wanted to use it as a primary device, so I need to take the laptop to the external output.
    The laptop itself recognizes as a secondary screen already, but this isn't what I want.
    Problem is I can't switch from the display without the FN key devices!

    I tried to search the net and this forum - but the solution posted does not work for the M30. There is no option in the utility of HW and not in the BIOS to enable the external keyboard support.
    Please is there any other combination of keys that would work or a software utility that allows me to turn on? It's a really bad situation for me :(

    All solutions anyone? :(

    Greetings and thanks in advance


    Please don't be crazy on me but I write here very often and somehow try to help, but I'm still irritated if someone thinks that anything is possible. Unfortunately, you have to accept that sometimes there is hardware limitation and there is nothing to do.
    I want to talk about primary and secondary monitor.

    On most laptops, the LCD is always set as primary and cannot be changed. So, as far as I know, without using the FN + F5 key combination you extend the desktop to external display and use both of them. Using display settings you should be able to switch to an external display only (display control panel settings NVIDIA advance settings and so on). Please test only because I don't have M30, but the principle is used the same.

    If you will be able to use external display only try to restart your laptop and see on which screen the office will be shown. If you will be lucky and office will be shown on the external display, try to extend the desktop to second monitor (laptop LCD).

    Good bye

  • How to use the print face feature two automatic? I get only one side printed.

    I just got a new HP Officejet Pro 8600 and it says it's supposed to automatically print double-sided.  When I have a paper face two feed the paper from the upper bin feeder, it takes in and it then prints on one side, then he pulls the book which he just printed in as if he was going to print the second side, but then it ejects just page and does never print the second side.  I have an Asus computer running Windows 7, but I'm just trying to make a copy two faces to the right of the printer itself.  I went into the settings and there are two options under two back, we say '1-coast face 1 copy Original' and the other choice I have chosen is "1 side 2-sided original copy.  Those are the only choices.  What I am doing wrong?

    The two-sided printing module will print the back automatically when printing.  When making copies, it will print the back if you put two (or more) pages in the feeder and select this option to copy 1-face to face 2.  This model apparently does not 2 head to head 2 copies, i.e., it doesn't have a mechanism to scan the rear face of load in the ADF.

    To resize a window, place the cursor in a corner and drag it to make
