I need to save this after I put it out here today:
For Any version of Windows:
- PrtSc (Print Screen) key captures a full-screen screenshot to the clipboard.
- ALT+PrtSc captures a windowed screenshot (e.g, only your non-maximized File Explorer, or web browser, or dialog box with focus) to the clipboard.
You can then open any program of your choosing where an image is paste-able and paste away. Save if necessary, and it probably will be.
For Windows 10:
- WinKey+PrtSc will take a full screen screenshot. This will be placed in the Pictures library, Screenshots folder, in PNG file format. Files will be named Screenshot(N), where N will be populated with integer numbers starting with 1.
- WinKey+ALT+PrtSc will take a windowed screenshot. This will be placed in the Videos library, Captures folder, in PNG file format. Files will be named based upon the window title or dialog title coupled with a date-time stamp after that. [On every machine I've dealt with so far, these screenshots involve the use of Xbox, indirectly, and they've always ended up in Videos\Captures.]

Explanations exist; they have existed for all time; there is always a well-known solution to every human problem — neat, plausible, and wrong.
