2. Screenshot on PC Using Print Screen Button

Although not working on some modern apps, if you want to take a full snip of your display quickly, there is no better way than using the print screen button. in the older supported device, pressing the print screen button will automatically take a picture of your entire display and save it in a folder named screenshots on the pictures folder in your library. if the PrintScreen button alone is not working, try a combination of buttons from PrintScreen fn and Windows Key. for example, in modern laptops, to take a screenshot on windows 11 using PrintScreen, we should use fn + windows + PrintScreen.
