How do you Print screen on Spectre?

HP Recommended
Spectre
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

So after I FINALLY found the Print Screen button on the Spectra, I used the typical method of WINDOWS + Print Screen, and nothing. I know I can use  the snipping tool and I know about SHIFT + WINDOWS + S. I'm not looking for an alternative to print screen. I would like to know how to make the Print Screen button work? Pressing it with the WINDOWS button doesn't work. Normally the screen will dim a bit when a screenshot is taken, this is not the case. And if it is working, I have no idea where it would be saving to, because it's not in the pictures folder that I can see. Help Please? Thanks 🙂

I cannot comment on "dim screen" action.

 

Print Screen / Prnt Screen

 

From Microsoft:

Keyboard shortcuts in Windows

In Section: Windows logo key keyboard shortcuts

 

Windows logo key  + Shift + S

Take a screenshot of part of  your screen. 

Enclose the area to be “snipped” (click upper left and lower right to enclose / grab the area)

 

The "grabbed" screen shot is not saved to your computer, it is added to the Clipboard.

Use normal Paste (Cntrl V) to paste the snipped item into your document.

 

 

What else?

 

Create a Snip of the information on the page > save the snipped image as a .jpg file > print that file.

 

Snip – available since Vista!  Check out the “delay” feature in Windows 10

Snipping Tool in Windows 10 / 8 / 7: Tips & Tricks to capture screenshots

 

From Microsoft

Use Snipping Tool to capture screenshots

 

What else?

 

Firefox provides a "snip" feature -- you must have a Firefox account to use it.

Hi. I know how to use the methods you are speaking of. I'm not looking for an alternative to Print Screen, I want to know how to make Print Screen work. I'm pressing WINDOWS+Print Screen. It's not working.

Screen darkens to allow "snip"

 

Setting  "Use the PrtScn button to open screen snipping"

 

Settings > Ease of Access > Keyboard

Switch ON Print Screen Shortcut

 

To Use:

Click PrtScn

OR

Click PrtScn + FN

 
 
 

Note: External keyboards might respond differently.  For example, external keyboard will  not likely require the FN key even if that key is normally used with the onboard keyboard in the machine.

Windows + Print Screen

 

  • Windows key + PrtScn saves to C:\Users\AccountName\Pictures\Screenshots\filename.png

 

If that does not work, add the FN (Function) key

 

  • Windows key + PrtScn + FN key saves to C:\Users\AccountName\Pictures\Screenshots\filename.png

 

Current focus

 

Windows key + PrtScn + FN + Alt saves to C:\Users\AccountName\Videos\Captures\filename+date-time.png
