Print Screen with wireless keyboard?

  geedad 21:39 05 Jul 2011

My HP wireless keyboard does not work. I have pressed the "Prt Scr" key, but nothing happens. I have tried a combination "Ctrl" + "Prt Scr", but to no avail. Is there another way to print the screen? geedad

How are you using "Prt Scr"? What it does is to copy the screen to the clipboard so that you can paste into a graphics program, Word etc. Alt+PrtScr copies the active window. You don't actually see anything happen when you press the key.

mgmcc Thank you very much. I was a little puzzled since this keyboard is new as the PC is, and previously I had used a freebie piece of software on my old Xp with good results. Hence, I had forgotten how to use the PrtScn, and when 'nothing happened' as you indicated, I thought something may not be working properly with my mouse/keyboard!

I will give your advice a go, and see what happens.

Nontek Thanks for your suggestion. geedad
