The screenshot of the screen is a picture of a certain area of ​​the display or the entire desktop. It may be needed if it is necessary to demonstrate the capabilities of the program, show a problem when contacting technical support or fix the contents of the page of the site. Sometimes photographs in the browser are protected from downloading. then they can also simply be screened.

You can create a photo of the screen in good quality using system tools or special software. Today we will tell you how to take a screenshot on a laptop or computer with different methods.

How to screenshot with standard Windows tools

The first thing that comes to mind here is, of course, hot keys and functions already built into the system. You do not need to install software, but there is a minus. Standard services do not offer additional options for editing and fast sending pictures, for example, you will not be able to arrange a long screenshot with scrolling or send a result to instant messengers.

Screenshot in Windows XP

On Windows XP you can create only a screen of the entire monitor. You will also need a graphic editor to save the picture. To capture content:

  • Open the window you want to capture. At the same time, click Alt Print Screen (PRTSCR). Where to look for a button? See in the figure below. Most often it is located at the top of the keyboard between F12 and Scroll Lock.
  • Launch any photo editor, for example, Paint. In the upper line menu, click “Edit”. “insert“. You can use Ctrl v combination.
  • Click on the “file” menu and export the image.

Scissors program in Windows 7

You can use the Buildings “Scissors”. It will remove the selected area or the entire monitor. How to make a screen?

  • Open the “scissors” tool. To do this, click on the “Start” and dial the phrase “scissors” in the search bar.
  • Pull the cursor on the arrow next to the “create” and select “arbitrary shape”, “rectangle” or “all screen”.

✦ When using a rectangular fragment, select the desired area with the mouse.

✦ In full.screen mode, the service will remove the material immediately after choosing the type of capture.

Recommendations for Windows 8.1, 10

To remove the display on Windows 8 and 10, you can use the “Scissors” tool. A quick screenshot can be designed using the keyboard:

Creating a screenshot on a laptop

And as it already said above, almost any keyboard (classic type) provides a key to create screenshots. It is usually called “Print Screen”.

How to Take a Screenshot on Windows 10

But on laptops, most often, you can find some of its contractions of “PRNT SCRN”. “PRT SC” and other derivatives! Perhaps therefore, many beginners simply do not realize that “PRT SC” is “Print Screen”.

(usually the “PRT SC” key is located in the upper right corner of the keyboard, not far from the F12 button. )

And so as to take a screenshot. just click once on this button! Everything that was on the screen will be saved in the buffer (t.e. In memory of the computer). Cm. An example below.

To “see” a converted screenshot. open the Paint or Word program, and then click the combination of CTRLV buttons (this is the “insert” operation).

When working on a laptop for placing a screenshot in a buffer, it is far from always enough to press one button “PRT SC” (on some devices, the work of this key is limited in the BIOS settings).

Therefore, if you did not manage to make the screen first way, try to press the buttons at the same time: “FN PRT SC” (.: without plus and quotation marks). An example below

Next, start Word or Paint similarly and try to perform the Operation Operations.

By the way, also note that in order not to remove the entire screen, but only one active window. you can use the combination of “FN Alt PRT SC”. An example below

Windows tool (Windows)

In Windows 7, 8, 10, 11, there is a convenient “Snipping Tool” tool for working with screenshots. To start this program, you can use the “Start” menu. or just enter this name into the search bar (an example for Windows 10 below).

In addition, you can use a universal way to launch “scissors”:

  • First you need to press Winr. to make the window “execute”;
  • Then in the line “open” insert Snippingtool.EXE
  • And press Ok.

SnippingTool.EXE. launching scissors (method 2)

When the program window opens, you can immediately click on “Create”. An example below.

Then, using the mouse, just highlight the area that you want to screecify (example below).

Please note that after highlighting the desired area, it will have it in the “Scissors” program window. Now you can save the resulting screen (combination of “Ctrls” buttons).

I note that from the “scissors” the screenshot can be sent to Paint 3D (for Windows 10). With the help of Paint 3D, by the way, the picture can be finished and changed beyond recognition.

And you can transfer the screen to Paint 3D and change it!

The program “Fragment and sketch”

Recently, Windows 10 added another application for working with screenshots. “Fragment and Sketch”. With it, you can also take pictures of the selected area, selected windows or the entire screen. Most likely, in the future this utility will replace the “scissors”.

To call a “fragment and sketch”, click Win Shift S or find a program for the name through the search by the system. Having launched it, select the screenshot area using the buttons that appeared on the display.

To see the screen picture, open Paint and click Ctrl v. When the image appears in the program, it can be edited and saved on a hard disk. In some assemblies of Windows in the “fragment and sketch” there is a editor that allows you to do without Paint. programs

If you have little standard ways, you can try these tools with additional functions.

Nimbus Capture is a browser plugin, with which it is very convenient to make screenshots of web pages. In addition to ordinary shots of the entire screen, windows or a dedicated fragment, it also allows you to capture the full length of the page, even if it does not fit into the screen.

And in Nimbus Capture you can edit images and save them directly in Google Drive. Plus, the plugin can record a video screen.

To take a screenshot, just click on the Nimbus Capture button on the browser panel and select the screen area. You can also configure hot keys and pictures format: PNG or JPG.

All of these functions are available for free. But, if you want to attach your logo to the screenshots, save them in Dropbox and receive operational technical support, you will have to issue a subscription worth 15 a year.

Game screen

Many users, when they are looking for how to make a screen, understand by this to get a picture of the screen from any game.

In general, from many games you can’t take a screenshot in a classic way. for this you need special. utilities. One of the most popular and convenient is Fraps (I recommend it!).

The most popular game lovers program. Allows you to observe the amount of FPS (number of frames per second) in any game, make screenshots and shoot the video of everything that happens on the screen (the program uses its own codec, which does not load much PC, and the video can be recorded even on the old gland).

Next, open the Screenshots section. Destroy the following here:

After configuring Fraps. You need to start the game. By default, in the upper left corner of the screen you will see yellow numbers that will constantly change (this is FPS, which means Fraps works!).

Now it is enough to press the Page Up button (which we set up in the previous step) and the screenshot go to our folder (by the way, the yellow numbers are characterized by blinking).

Actually, going into the folder, which was set in the settings (by default, this is C: \ Fraps \ Screenshots), in it you will find all the screenshots made (now they can be re.reset with Greenshot and apply arrows).

You can find a screenshot made in a system application that performs the functions of a photo gallery on your device. For example, on the Nexus, Pixel, Google Play Edition devices and other episodes with pure Android on board the screenshots are displayed in the Screenshots folder in the Google Photo program.

old Android versions

Unfortunately, Android system to version 4.0 did not have a regular function of creating screen images. The problem was solved by smartphone manufacturers. For example, in some even old Samsung devices, screenshots can be made simultaneously by pressing the power buttons and “Home”.

If this combination does not work in your case, then you should contact Google: perhaps your device also knows how to take screenshots out of the box, but with its cunning combination.

If the search has not given results, try programs like Screenshot (for Android 2.3 and newer) or No Root Screenshot it (for Android 1.5 and more fresh versions of the OS).
