My HP TouchSmart PC does not have a print screen button! How do I take a screen shot?

I just checked a few keyboards that come with the TouchSmarts and they do have the print screen buttons, so then I looked at the touchscreen keyboard, and by golly, sure enough, there wasn't one.  So I played around for a couple minutes and found it!

 In the upper left corner of the the touch keyboard on my 520, there is Tools with a drop down menu next to it.


Touch the drop down arrow.

The first item in the drop down list is Show expaned keyboard.

Touch Show expaned keyboard.

Oneon the 520 expanded keyboard, there are two columns of buttons on the right.

Find PrtScn.


That was a great question.  Thanks.  I hope your model is similar to the TouchSmart 520.
