In this blog, I’m going to describe how to take a screenshot of  computer screen or laptop by using windows. I will tell you two different methods to take a screenshot. One uses an app that comes with windows and the second technique is using your keyboard.


  • Snipping Tool

So let’s start with the app first that comes with windows the probably the easiest way. Go to the search bar and then type in the snipping tool that’s the name of the app. You can also find this tool, press the start button and scroll to the very bottom. And you will see there is a section called windows accessories, click it and you will find a snipping tool here.

  • Keyboard (How to Take Screenshot of Computer)

Next, I want to tell you how to take a screenshot by using your keyboard? So I have a few different keyboards because the sort of keyboard you have affects how you type. Your screen will be printed in a slightly different manner. In the first talk about the dell keyboard, there is simply a section that says print screen. And so what you need to press the function key at the same time. So you will simply press function and print screen at the same time and then there the screenshot was saved.

Some keyboards have the option on, the button that says prt scn that’ the abbreviation for print screen. Printing the screen out that’s where that comes from because you want to print a copy of this all you do is simply press. The print screen button and then that also takes a screenshot.

And then if you also have a Lenovo laptop and there’s a key here that says prt sc and that also allows you to print the screen. Now a few of the fancy things that you could do so print screen simply takes a screen capture of the entire screen.
