I've tried the print screen button, win+print screen, ctrl+print screen and nothing will work. So how do I take a screen shot with this? Thanks.

Welcome to the HP support community.

 

I understand that you want assistance in taking screenshots, and I am glad to assist you.

Use the Snipping Tool when you have a mouse and a keyboard:

  • Press Windows logo key + Shift + S. The desktop will darken while you select an area for your screenshot.
  • Rectangular mode is selected by default. You can change the shape of your snip by choosing one of the following options in the toolbar: Rectangular mode, Window mode, Full-screen mode, and Free-form mode.
  • The screenshot is automatically copied to your clipboard. A notification also appears once you're finished taking a screenshot, select it for more editing options.

To use the Snipping Tool with only a mouse:

  • To open the Snipping Tool, select Start, enter snipping tool, then select it from the results.
  • Select New to take a screenshot.
  • Rectangular mode is selected by default. You can change the shape of your snip by choosing one of the following options in the toolbar: Rectangular mode, Window mode, Full-screen mode, and Free-form mode.
  • The screenshot is automatically copied to your clipboard. A notification also appears once you're finished taking a screenshot, select it for more editing options.

Keep me posted.

If this helps, please mark the public post as an accepted solution so that it benefits several others.

Cheers.
