How to take a screenshot on Windows 10

In this blog post, you will learn how to take a screenshot on Windows 10.

Step by step

  • Press the Windows key + Print Screen
  • Open Paint and press Ctrl+V to paste your screenshot
  • Save it as a .jpg file on your Desktop
  • You can also take screenshots of specific windows by pressing Alt + PrtScn, or taking screenshots of individual menus by pressing Alt + Shift-PrtScn
  • If you want to capture something in a window that you don’t have open, click on the title bar and drag it down until the pointer changes into a crosshair; release, when you see the rectangle around what you want to, capture
  • Use Snipping Tool if you need more advanced features like annotating images with arrows or text boxes, adding comments for others viewing them later, etc.; this is accessed through Start > All Programs > Accessories > Snipping Tool
  • You can also press windows logo key + shift + S to snip what’s on your screen without starting snip & sketch
  • To create an animated GIF from multiple pictures taken one after another, use GifCam

Finally, make sure that your computer has enough memory before taking any large screen captures; otherwise, they may crash!

That’s all there is to it!
