    Windows 10 Screenshots delayed and/or not capturing shots of what's directly on the screen?


    As it says in the title, screenshots are extremely delayed and/or just not capturing what's directly on the monitor.


    Snipping tool is off and no delay set, and I've tried Printscreen and Windows-Printscreen, both give the same result.

    I'm trying to capture screenshots from games, but it always takes shots of the exit menus or other random screens, not what I'm actually looking at.


    I have a gaming PC, Windows 10, and only one monitor.


    I'm really confused by this. Any ideas?

    :)

  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.

    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.
