Capture The Image
You can use 6 methods on Windows to take a screenshot. Three of which are based on the PrtScn key while the remaining three require the Win key.
1. Print Screen (PrtScn)
Print Screen captures your entire screen. This function captures everything shown in all connected displays as an image when you have more than one display. This method will not automatically save your image as a file but only sends the captured image to the clipboard. You can then open the paint and press Ctrl + v there to crop and save as you wish.
2. Alt + Print Screen
Alt + Print Screen captures a window. But before pressing these two keys you should make sure that your window is first highlighted on the browser. This method will not automatically save your image as a file but only sends the captured image to the clipboard. You can then open the paint and press Ctrl + v there to crop and save as you wish.
3. Win + Print Screen
You can capture the entire screen by pressing Win + Print Screen. The difference here is that Windows saves your image as a file and automatically sends it to the C drive.
