you can use freeware tools

Bug Shooting


Lightshot: it overrides your PrtSc, so once you press you fireup the screenshot tool

I like captImag
portable no installation requires, for basic screenshots its fine

Screenshot Captor
The only capture facility that can take a self-portrait

To take a screen shot on a Windows laptop, just follow these steps. If you want to take an shot of everything that is displayed on your screen and you want to save it to send it or upload it, simply: 1. Press the Windows Key and the PrtScn (Print Screen) button.

i agree , but i know of two ways.. the best is the key combo: ALT or CTRL key- or the FN key (such as my laptop) and the PRNT SCRN keys to copy a snapshot of the screen , and then opening the PAINT or 3d PAINT that came with your laptop.

the other way is to open the SNIPPING TOOL from the WINDOWS ACCESSORIES folder, lassoing the part of the screen you want to copy, and then pasting that to the PAINT program

If you are on Windows 10 then simply press Windows key+PrtScr button simultaneously and the screenshot will be generated right away on your Desktop, inside the screenshot folder which you can find under pictures folder.

Very intelligible and understandable. That's what I need.
But some screenshots I can't understand but it is not a problem.

Either you can use the inbuilt screenshot taking tool i.e. Snipping Tool
Or you can press windows button and Prt. Scrn button simulteneously to get it

Well, on my laptop, Fn + PRTSC takes a screenshot that can be pasted from the clipboard into MSPaint, WordPad, etc.
(On my laptop, the "PRTSC" key is the "END" key of the numpad, which is just above the "8" key.)

download ScreenHunter software from internet. it is free software. It is good, try it . I hope it will solve your problem.

I rather like:
* PicPick (, which IS free for personal use.
* Cloudshot (, which is free too.

The very simple free screen-capture tool at might do for you.

(To help a couple of people at the TPFC forums, I created a couple of naive near-identical programs with AutoIt.
Amongst other things, they take screenshots and windowshots according to user-specified hotkeys and save to
a user-specified directory.

I use Firefox and it looks like the latest version (56.0) now comes with a screencapture feature built in.
