How to Take Screenshots

General PC Tips Add a comment!

Many people need to take screenshots of their computer screen for many different purposes.

To take a screenshot of your current screen, no external program is needed. Just press the Print Screen button on your keyboard, open up Paint and click paste.

This method will not work for video because it shown on another layer and the screenshot will come out blank. To avoid this, follow these steps.

For Windows Media Player 11, right click somewhere on the outside of the video, go to tools, options, performance, advanced. From there deselect the overlays option and you will be able to take screenshots of video.

Taking this step with the disabling of the overlays, you will also have the power to watch TV and use full screen games/apps and media players at the same time.
