    Every night at about 11:55 pm my Windows 10 uses capture picker and takes a screen shot of...


    Within the hour it dissappears... Why is this happening? Is someone or something taking the shots?
    It doesnt seem to matter what is going on at the time, be it a browser window open or im racing my in game.
    What usefull information could they obtain from such a practice?
    The machine is a W10 Build 17763. And, "No, I don't want to upgrade to 1903.
    I had it already and I reinstalled this version on purpose because it runs so much smoother in this system.
    Any help is greatly appreciated, but I need to know why it's happening in this version? Is it only this version?
    Is it an exploit? & if you know, where should I look to find the tracks so I can stop it?​

    :)

  2. capturing screen shots in Windows 10

    I can't find how to "print screen" in Windows 10. Hitting cntl or alt or shift or Fn or windows alone or in any combination with the PrtSc button doesn't work. (Someone suggested something with the G key, but that just asks about games.)

    Does Window support screen shot capturing, or do we have to download another separate program? If it does, how do I do it in Windows 10? Thanks.

  3. Screen Shot in Windows 10

    Hi Jeremy,

    Thank you for posting the query on Microsoft Community. I am glad to assist you on this.

    To guide you in the right direction, I need more information from the computer by answering the following questions:

    • What exactly are you referring to?
    • Are you facing any kind of issues with Windows?
    If you want to take a screen shot and save it as picture, I suggest you to check with the below steps.

    To take a screen shot and save it as a picture


    • Click the window you want to capture. Press Alt+Print Screen by holding down the Alt key and then pressing the Print Screen key. The Print Screen key is near the upper-right corner of your keyboard. (Depending on the type of keyboard you have, the exact
      key names on your keyboard may vary slightly.)
    Note: You can take a screen shot of your entire desktop rather than just a single window by pressing the Print Screen key without holding down the Alt key.


    • Click Start, click Accessories, and then click
      Paint.

    • In the Paint window, click Edit, and then click
      Paste.

    • When the image appears in the Paint window, click File, and then click
      Save As.

    • In the Save As dialog box, in the File name box, type a name for the screen shot, and then click
      Save.

    Please do get back to us with the answers to assist you better with issue you are facing.
