    Print Screen Button

    Hi All

    On my old laptops keyboard the Print Screen button was on the main keyboard and even when I changed how the F keys work in the Bios I had no problem as Prt Sc was the default action for that button.

    On my new laptop though I noticed that the Print Screen button now shares space with the END key but it's on the Calculator side of the keyboard. Problem is the default for this button is END rather then Print Screen. I have to use the FN button to use Print Screen.

    Is there any way to control the options for just this one button as I want to leave my F keys as the default as I use F Keys as hotkeys in some games but I really would like the Print Screen option to be the default for that key.

    So is there a way to reverse that one key or am I stuck with it being defaulted to END?

    If so how do I swap this one keys default?

    No print button

    Thanks for your reply, but if you look up at the comments you'll see that, while I and another person share your frustration, it wasn't for lack of knowing the steps you list. It was that the print button, which seemed missing, was just off the screen at
    bottom. They need a redesign.

    No matter, though, as I've switched my default to the old Windows Photo Viewer they no longer use.

    Print screen only prints last copied material

    Hi Noor,

    Your question does not contain all the required information need us to help you.

    Please provide us more information to help you better:

    • Are you able to save the print screen to any applications? Example: Paint or Microsoft Word.

    • How are you trying to accessing the print screen option?

    If you have a print screen button (PrtScn) in the keyboard, I suggest you to use the same and verify the result. You may also try taking the print screen for a particular window by pressing Alt + PrtScn button and verify the result.

    Reply with necessary information and the result to help you further.

    Thank you.
