How do I take a screenshot?

press PrtScn = Windows captures the entire screen and copies it to the (invisible) clipboard.
Note: On some notebooks you have to hold Fn and then press PrtScn instead.

Where can I find that key?

PrtScn
ScrLk
Pause
Look for this group of keys at the upper right of your keyboard. Note: Print Screen (PrtScn) might have been abbreviated differently on your keyboard.

How do I take a screenshot of a single window?

hold down Alt and press PrtScn = Windows captures only the currently active window and copies it to the clipboard.

I guess it’s in the clipboard now. How can I paste it into a document or something?

hold down Ctrl and press V = Windows pastes the screenshot (that is in the clipboard) into a document or image you are currently editing.

Can you show me in a video?
