Welcome to the forum. Sorry I missed your post. I thought it was another add on for discussion. Well let's get you started. First things first Press Print Screen button on the keyboard now go to paint program. Open it up Now you will see a clip board on left top corner See the word paste click it. Here is where you can add stuff to the screen shot. To save it print it or change the format setting for screen shot. Top left corner in blue box click on the triangle. Your options list drops down please choose what ever you like to do with it. Now lets say you chose save picticure as JPEG you like to darkend it up before printing. Go to Pictures. Locate picture now left click on pictue this gives you all kinds of option short cuts on what to do with it. So we are going to select open with Microsoft Office on my computer it has photo editing tools. Now you can edit the pictue. It will list all your programs if you choose default programs. If you have more then several programs with editing tools such as I do om my computer. Please click on Kudos if I answered your guestion and your issue is resolved. Thank you frrw.

I was hoping to find an answer to this issue but now I suspect it is a Vista and Win7 issue as my desktop PC is older with the same issue and this new HP laptop has the same trouble and it is brand new.

"I was hoping to find an answer to this issue but now I suspect it is a Vista and Win7 issue as my desktop PC is older with the same issue and this new HP laptop has the same trouble and it is brand new."
What is the issue? Is there something that's been explained here that doesn't seem to work? Please let us - fellow computer users - know what the issue is, and someone might be able to help you find the answer.
If you haven't already, perhaps you could take a look at the answers that have been posted earlier in this thread. They explain how the print screen functions work.

You can also *paste* the *screen shot* in the Microsoft Paint program. This in turn allows you to save that certain *screen shot* as a variety of different picture files.
*paste* - to paste your current screen shot, just right click, then paste. Simple.
*screen shot* - everything that is seen on your screen the moment you press the print screen key/option.
(On my Hp pavilon g series laptop, there is a prt sc / impr. écr key above the backspace key)
This is my example.
open a internet web page like mine;
locate you print screen key/option, this will take a *screen shot*
Now just File, Save.
I named my first print screen; "Print Screen. State Farm spelling mistake"
Thanks. ilp \ - = 8
