Re: How do I take a screenshot in Windows 8?

Hi,

 

Should be the same like other Windows - hit Print Screen or PrtScn or PRT Scrn ... key will do. This will copy the screen to the clipboard and you can paste to a supported Windows application such as Paint, Word, PowerPoint ...

 

Hope this helps.

You can try these solutions:

 

 

1. Press the Windows key + the Print Screen key at the same time;

 

2. Press the Fn key + the Print Screen key at the same time.

 

On Windows 8, the screenshot will be automatically saved to the Pictures library.  If you still can't get a screenshot by using those methods, then you can utilize Windows built-in screenshot utility---Snipping Tool or some third-party programs to take a screenshot on Windows 8.
