Hi i have the latest version of windows on my laptop.
I pressed print screen to take a screenshot of some important work which i was doing, but when i went into my folders and then to try find screenshots, its not there for some reason?
Are you sure you have Windows10? I found the <winlogo-key+PrtSc> button combination on my Win8 shortcuts reference card. It's possible it works in Win8, but it doesn't appear to work in Win10 as I just tried it on my Win10 laptop; no-go.
You might also consider using the built-in Snipping Tool included with Win10; however you can't use a keyboard shortcut to get your screenshot, but you can do it with a few mouse-clicks, and it gives you the ability to save your screenshot image file to whatever location on your computer you want; hard drive, flash drive, external hard drive, Cloud storage folder, network drive, etc. Here's a little article I found that shows you how to find Snipping Tool: http://lifehacker.com/5825771/how-to-take-a-screenshot-or-picture-of-whats-on-your-computer-screen
EDIT:hi again, I thought I'd help you out some more and I just downloaded and installed PicPick on my Win10 laptop. It works great, and will give you back your PrtSc (Printscreen button) again! (it won't print your screen to the printer the way that button did back in the old DOS days, but it's pretty close).You can program it to use any of the function keys usually found on the top row of the standard qwerty keyboard either on desktops or laptops. So you could even pick something like <Fn key + F6> combo, or <Shift-key + PrtSc key> combo. That's really cool! This little program has literally hundreds of options. You might give it a try. The home version is completely free, and I ran my Norton antivirus scanner on it so it's safe. (The business version is only $20). Give it a try and let us know what you think!
Hope that helps! Thanks for your post--that was a good question.
Have a Great day!
Win key + PrtSc works for me, it saves a png image of the screen on Win 10.
As others have said already, pressing the PrtSc key alone will save an image of the screen in the clipboard. Open an image editor and paste the image there to save it. Also, if you press Alt + PrtSc you can get an image of the currently active window only.
if you use the built in game recorder in wx then its [windows key] + [alt] + [prt sc] and they save to the "C:\Users\USERNAME\Videos\Captures" file by default but you can change both the save folder and the short cuts keys in the main apps settings
