Hi:

 

What is the best way to take a screenshot and save it to a file?

 

Thank you.

By pressing the Print-Screen key; the JPG should show up in your Pictures\ScreenShots Folder.

Dale,

       You must hit Windows Key+Prt Sc to have a full screen screen shot automatically saved in the Pictures\Screenshots folder in PNG format.

        Hitting PrtSc alone places a full screen screen shot on the clipboard, but if you want to have it saved you need to open an image manipulation program such as Paint, paste it, then save it.

I stand corrected on the file format – it *is png, not jpg.

However, on *my Dell laptop, the PrintScreen key alone does put an image file in the Screenshots Folder.

JAWS OCR may be brought up with the Applications key and used on the file directly.

Be well

Do you by any chance use Dropbox or OneDrive and have you configured either one of them to do screenshots? If so then the printscreen key alone will work or else it might be particular to Del or maybe even your Del computer.

Oops! Yes to both OneDrive and DropBox.

Sorry for the noise.

I’ll go back to my corner.

Be well
