Hold down the CTRL key and tap the PRTSC key. (The PRTSC key will be on the upper right hand row of your keyboard. Look carefully and you should be able find it.) That saves what you have on your display to memory. Open Wordpad and hold the CTRL key and tap the V key. That will paste the image into Wordpad.

You need to press two keys at the same time: Fn + prt sc.

Daniel is correct. I just took a look at my HP 6720s laptop. That is an idiosyncrasy of HP laptops. Most other brands, my Toshiba Satellite included, have closer to the standard keyboard layout of a desktop keyboard with the exception of the F keys.

That's weird that you have to press 2 keys. I only have to hit the prt sc button on my Pavilion ze5700 and then I just paste it into MS Paint. How come I only have to hit 1 button?
Never mind. I just answered my own question. Is it because my prt sc is the top "thing" on that button?

Fn key activates all keys with blue symbols. We may say too then not all.
Keys which are in red rectangles on below photo You use with Fn key. I marked with the same color Fn key too.
Keys in blue rectangles You are enablling with Fn + F8 ("num lock") combination. You disable them by pressing again Fn +F8 keys.
Sorry then I reply so late, but it was not so easy to find this picture. I had this model too .

What does the FN + F5 button do?
This key combination will switch Your screen to external display if it's connected.
What does the FN + F12 button do?
This key combination will switch Your laptop to hibernation mode, but this function must be enabled in Your system
