[ad]Print Screen Key
The print screen key is usually located in the upper-right section of your keyboard, and might be abbreviated, PrtScr.
The Print Screen key works in all versions of Windows, and even in DOS (the Microsoft operating system before Windows).
In DOS, pressing the print screen key causes the computer to print a picture of your screen.
In most versions of Windows, pressing the print screen key causes the computer to take a picture of your screen and store it on the clipboard. You can then paste it into any graphics program.
