Get Copy of Your Screen
One often has to make a note of what is on the screen and at other times one needs to make a copy of something. It is possible to take a “ photo” of your screen at any time by holding down the Shft key and pressing the PrtScn key usually situated somewhere towards the top right of your keyboard. What this does is copy what is on your screen to the clipboard. Now to make a copy of this open one of the following: Wordpad, Office Word or Paint and then either use the Edit tab and select Paste or click Ctrl + V and you will see what was on your screen reappear. You can save this as a file. Please note that this can be a fairly large file so it is advisable to paste it to Paint and then save it as a .jpg or .bmp file and one can cut and edit it to suit one’s requirements.
