******************

I've been trying to search for this guide in gu.gif and I didn't found anything. Perhaps it is somewhere but last week I recieved over 20 asks how to take a screenshot. So now I decided to make a quick guide how to take it because people just are too lazy to search for it. You can also take screenshots from games.

Step 1
Find a good moment to take a picture of. (Can be your desktop pic, game screenshot, ..anything)

Step 2
Find a button Prt Scrn Sys Rq on your keyboard. It is usually next to Scroll Lock button. CLICK IT.

Step 3
Now open a Paint program. Click Edit and after that Paste. Or you can easily press Ctrl (+) V. Every computer must have that program (I don't even bother saying that).

Step 4
Now you have the screenshot in your computer. Press Save and save it. Now you have a screenshot and you can upload it, edit it in Photoshop etc do what you want with it.

Well nothing hard here. Enjoy.

Don't have Paint? Download Paint.NET! It's same as Paint but with more options! Where to download:

Download Paint.NET from download.com

Not downloading?

Download it from the official site!

It's not on here becouse we assume there are very few people who aren't capable of figuring it out themselves. Kudos for putting in effort anyhow

It was an orginal program for XP but for some reason it was taken off. I looked in ALL the files. Nothing.
Download anyone?

I suppose the time for words are now.

Beakening the words for Silent Sound.

Stand here and wait, and see.

For the vision is gray with me.

Stand here, and see what I know.

Or been gone and go.


See what is seen.

Known to be keen.

There is rise to the ground.

PrtSrc? I use F12!

Anyway Theese days I prefer fraps cause, then there is no need for doing thr alt+tab to change to the paint from the game. And also it's easier to take more screens close to eacother with fraps. But Fraps arn.t for newbies, Mor for advance screenshots taker tongue.gif

That doesn't make any sense. Fraps is less difficult than the normal way. You only have to press a single button and you get a screenshot in your desired dir with the desired filetype.

Also Silent Sound, try pressing the windows button + r (opens the run window) and type mspaint.

If it gives an error then mspaint isn't on your pc, otherwise it should open.
It should be located in C:\WINDOWS\system32.
