How do I take a screenshot?

hold down and Shift and press S = Use your mouse to draw a rectangle in order to specify what to capture. Windows then copies it to the clipboard.

I guess it’s in the clipboard now. How can I paste it into a document or something?

hold down Ctrl and press V = Windows pastes the screenshot (that is in the clipboard) into a document or image you are currently editing.

Where should I paste it? I just need a (graphics) file.

  1. Start “Paint”
  2. Paste
  3. Save
type “paint” into the search field

Is there a dedicated program for taking screenshots? How can I find it?

type “snip” into the search field
