Glad you figured it out.

But to be exact for any who may read this later, the button to press isn't "Print" but rather "Print Screen" (or "Prt Sc" on my laptop and I have to use the Function key to use it)

Also of note, you do not need a printer to use this key. It simply takes a snapshot of what is on the screen, including the taskbar and browsertabs.

Just hit the button then open Paint and hit CTL-V and it will paste the snapshot into the program.

With " Alt+Prtscr " you can grab what is in focus only at the time. For example you want only to show the main program (or little windows in focus) without your other icons on the windows bar etc. No need for cropping if you use this combination. Good for quick grabs while on MSN etc.

Fireshot can grab an entire page (not just the screen) for you. There's a free browser plugin (and a pro paid one) that you can install for Firefox, Chrome, IE, etc.


Works like a charm here. Handy when you have long pages you want to grab. :)

Alternatively, Snagit from Techsmith also does a wide range of screen/web grabbing - but its not free (a free trial is available).
