Taking a Screen Shot in XP and Windows 7

The feature of taking a screen shot in Windows XP is quite helpful. By taking a screen shot, you can capture an image on screen and save it for different purposes. For example, if you are looking at a web page and you want to show it to someone else, you can do so by taking screen shot. In this way, you will not need to send link of website. Today we will discuss how to take screen shot and save it.

Click the window which you want to take screen shot of. Now press ALT+PRINT SCREEN. You will find the PRINT SCREEN key on the upper right side of your keyboard. If you wish to take screen shot of entire desktop, you will just press PRINT SCREEN key.

Click “Start” button and from “Programs”, go to “Accessories” and then choose “Paint”.

After the “Paint” window opens, click “Edit” and then click “Paste”.

When you see your desired image in “Paint”, click on “File” and scroll down so that you can choose “Save As”.

“Save As” dialog box will be appeared in front of you. When it happens, type name for screen shot in “File name” box.

Now click on “Save”.

After this process, that particular picture will be just like any other picture saved on your computer. You can either print it or send it as email. Screen shot in Windows XP can be taken at any time except before logging onto computer and when a video is being played in MS Windows Media Player.
