A â€śscreenshotâ€ť or â€śprint screenâ€ť, is when we take an image of the computers screen as is.
Whatever is showing on your display can be captured and then saved as an image. This is called a print screen or screenshot.
To do it is fairly simple and straight forward. First you need to press the â€śprint screenâ€ť button as shown in the image below.
You have now â€ścopiedâ€ť or captured a snap shot of everything showing on your display. Secondly you need to past this snap shot. You wonâ€™t see it yet because you need to â€śpasteâ€ť or place this image inside an image view. Paint is a good start.
You can also paste it in other software such as an email, Microsoft word, Photoshop etc, but weâ€™ll use Microsoft paint for now.
Open the paint program in your start menu, when the program loads, while in that program, simply paste the image by â€śright-clickingâ€ť on your mouse and selecting â€śpasteâ€ť or by pressing â€śctrl + vâ€ť as shown in the picture.
The image should then appear in the software you have opened, the image will be of whatever was on your screen.
