I have got a acer aspire v5 touch screen laptop running windows 8.1. I wanted to take a screen shot but when I pressed the prtsc key it did not work.it was working alright before so I don't know whats gone wrong.

thanks jock1e I posted the same thread on Microsoft forum and someone said by pressing the windows key then the prtsc key it saves the screen shot and it works ok.

Not sure what's wrong here. Just pressing the PrtScr key copies to clipboard. I can then paste to Paint or Paint.Net without having to press the Windows key and the screen image shows up.
