Whether you want to save a map, a recipe, or a conversation, a screenshot can help you do that in just a few seconds. In this blog post, we will show you different ways to take a screenshot on your Acer Aspire 5 laptop.
Method 1: Using Print Screen (PrtSc) key
The most common way to take a screenshot on a Windows laptop is by using the Print Screen (PrtSc) key. To take a screenshot of your entire screen, press the PrtSc key on your keyboard. This will capture an image of the entire screen and save it to your clipboard. You can then paste the screenshot into an image editing program like Paint or Photoshop, and save it as an image file.
Method 2: Using Windows + Print Screen (PrtSc) keys
Another way to take a screenshot on your Acer Aspire 5 laptop is by using the Windows + Print Screen (PrtSc) keys. Pressing these keys together will capture an image of the entire screen and save it as a file in the Screenshots folder, located in the Pictures folder of your user account.
Method 3: Using the Snipping Tool
The Snipping Tool is a built-in Windows app that allows you to take screenshots of specific parts of your screen. To use the Snipping Tool, go to the Start menu, type in “Snipping Tool”, and press Enter. Once the app is open, click on “New” to start a new snip. Then, select the area of the screen you want to capture. The snip will be saved to the clipboard, and you can paste it into an image editing program and save it as an image file.
Method 4: Using the Windows + Shift + S keys
The latest version of Windows 10 has a new shortcut built in to quickly take a screenshot of a selected area of the screen. Press Windows + Shift + S keys together, it will open a small bar on the top of the screen, you can select the screen region you want to capture and it will be copied to clipboard.
