Use the [Print Scrn] key to do a screen capture

Posted on Wednesday, April 11, 2001 @ 01:54:28 AM CDT by David Yee [] [read 8158 times]

Tips: Windows-world
Back in the DOS days, pressing the [Print Scrn] key would automatically output what's on the screen to the printer port LPT1. In Windows the key will instead capture the entire screen in raw bitmap format into memory. You can then paste the contents into Paint or a program like Photoshop. If you just want a screen shot of the current window instead of the entire desktop, simply click on the window and press Alt + [Print Scrn].
