How do I take a screenshot of my desktop or running program?

It's very simple in fact. You can do it by your self or download a little program to do it for you.

The first method:

  • On your keyboard look for a button called Print Screen or "PRTSC" you will fin it in the upper part of the keyboard above the numbers and to the right of the F12 key in most keyboards.

  • Now the image is copied to the clipboard. Go to any image editing software you use (photoshop, painshop, etc) or just use "Paint" which comes with all windows versions :

    Go to the "Start" menu > "Accessories" then choose "Paint".

  • Press Crtl + V or Choose "Paste" from the "Edit" menu in Paint or in photoshop.
You can download Screenshot Captor which is a simple program which allows you to take screenshots, save and add effects to them or edit them in anywy you like.
