How to take screenshot on pc without the aid of any software.

In my previous post,i gave guide on how to take screenshot with your s40 java phones. Also today am going laying down some guide on how to take screenshot with your PC,without the aid of any software/apps.



  •  First, press the Print Screen key on your keyboard. It may be labeled [PrtScn].

  •   secondly,Run an image editing program, such as Microsoft Paint.
  •  Go to the Edit menu and choose Paste. If prompted to enlarge the image, choose Yes.
  •  Optional: Use your image editor's crop tool to crop out unnecessary portions of the screenshot.
  •  Goto the File Menu and choose Save As.
  •  Navigate to the folder where you want to save the image. Type a file name for the image.
  •  Select a file type and Click the Save button.
  • Shortcut: Hold the Alt key down while pressing Print Screen to capture only the active window.

NOTE:- Generally the GIF format works best when saving screenshots of application windows. The JPEG format usually makes screenshots, especially those with text blurry, blotchy and discolored.
The Window's "clipboard" is a term used to describe the temporary storage space in memory where an item is placed when you copy or cut. When you paste, the item is transferred to the program you are working in. If you copy something else, the old item is replaced with the new one. You can not manipulate the clipboard directly,because it is only used for copying and pasting operations.

  •  If you have windows Vista, you can capture screenshots much more better and easily using the Snipping Tool included with Vista.
