How To Take A Screen Shot

How To Take A Screenshot

Doing a screen shot is a very useful tool, especially for blogging.  Below I detailed step-by-step instruction on how to do so.  I am using Paint and Chrome to do it.

Step 1: Find the ‘Print Screen’ button on your keyboard.  Below is what my keyboard is like.  It is right next to the ‘delete’ button and over the ‘enter’ key.  It simply says ‘Prt. Sc’.

Step 2: Find the page or website you want to take a shot of.  Hit your Print Screen Button.

Step 3: Open ‘paint’ on your computer.  Click ‘crtl’  and ‘V’ at the same time.  Your screen shot will appear in paint.

Step 4:  Crop the image by clicking ‘crop’ and using your mouse to make a square over the section you want to save.
