  2. 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.

    Fastest way to screen-shot part of screen in Windows 10

    I have Windows 10 Pro. I'm a science teacher and a frequent user of the in-built snipping tool in Windows 10 Pro. I often create screen-shots of small parts of my screen to make "how-to" documents for my students. The "current-window-screen-shot" feature includes too much information. I'm only interested in the tiny portions of GeoGebra-calculations.

    Currently I do as follows:

    1. Windows button + S
    2. Type snipping tool then press Enter. The application opens (or use your own custom hotkey-combination to open this app)
    3. Choose New then select portion of the screen
    4. Press Ctrl+C
    5. Open a Word document
    6. Press Ctrl+V

    Since everything is done from the keyboard this procedure is pretty fast. But in OS-X it's only a 3-step procedure:

    1. Cmd+Ctrl+Shift+4 then select portion of the screen
    2. Open Word document
    3. Cmd+V

    Without buying a Mac (we only have PCs at work), what is the fastest possible way to take a screen shot of select a portion of the screen?
