Print Screen just captures and copies the 'picture' to clipboard it doesn't save the capture anywhere (not that I know of??)


As for different way to capture things....Window 7 has the Snipping tool : click on Start Orb > search > snipping and it should show in the list of results.

Or you could try a full program like 'Gadwin':




Download the free version Printscreen 5.4.

think of print screen like copy and paste, when you press prtscn button it copies the screen so then you have to paste it where you want it, either into a file or program, to save it, usually it's pasted into paint and saved as a jpeg image if i remember correctly.


now with windows 8 tho there is another way of doing things, if you hold down the windows key and press prtscn button it copies and pastes a screen shot into the pictures screenshots folder.

i think the print screen i used in the past was in my gaming program(mohaa)
