Hi Everyone,here is a guide to do this on your computer

We could spend all day arguing the merits of a good screen-capture utility.

Luckily, Windows has several built-in features for taking and saving screenshots for whatever reason you might need them, and they’re only a couple of keyboard clicks away. All three methods covered in this guide are free, no hassle, and work fantastically on nearly all machines built in the last decade and beyond. Let’s take a look.

Nice one Wolverine ...
Any image editor works quite in the same way .. PrintScreen, Paste .. Crop, Save, Done.
I use IrfanView32, I have for years .. but indeed, humble Paint found on All Windows based machine works fine. Thnx. .c.

Thanks Chris

I was hoping that this would be a useful piece of information instead of just some keyboard talk

I have found this a few weeks ago when I wanted to learn different ways to take a screenshot on my Asus rog laptop. You can also check it out by click on the link.

Windows PC.

Snipping Tool is all you Need. That is built into Windows No matter which version you are using.

It gives you freedom to choose between Full-Screen, Window, Rectangle and Free Shape. All you need is to toggle between the Modes as per your requirement.

This is what I use, or the newer but mostly the same "Snip & Sketch". No need to download anything extra.
