How to Print Screen on One Monitor

Print screen, also known as screen capture or screengrab, is a function that allows users to take a snapshot of their current screen. The print screen function is usually found on the top row of keys on a keyboard and is typically abbreviated as “PrtScn” or “PRTSC”.

In order to print screen on one monitor, follow the steps below:

  1. Open the window that you want to capture.
  2. Press the “PrtScn” or “PRTSC” button on your keyboard.
  3. The screen will be saved to your clipboard.
  4. Open an image editing program (such as Microsoft Paint).
  5. Paste the image from your clipboard into the image editing program.
  6. Save the image.

And that’s it! You’ve now successfully captured a screenshot of your screen using the print screen function on your keyboard.

There are a few things to keep in mind when using the print screen function. First, the print screen button will only capture the active window on your screen. So, if you want to capture your entire screen, you’ll need to make sure that all windows are minimized before pressing the print screen button. Second, the print screen button will not save the image to your computer automatically – you’ll need to open an image editing program and paste the image from your clipboard in order to save it.

If you’re using a Windows computer and want to take a screenshot of your entire screen, you can also use the “Windows+PrtScn” shortcut. This shortcut will automatically save your screenshot as a PNG file in the “Screenshots” folder in your “Pictures” folder.

Taking screenshots is a great way to capture images or text from your screen. Whether you’re wanting to save a recipe, capture an error message, or just share something funny you saw online, the print screen function is a quick and easy way to do it.
