Hello friends, how do I create a screen shot? Do I need a special program installed on my laptop to do so, or I can indeed get a screen shot using my OS? My laptop runs on MS Vista Home Basic. Please help. Thanks.

Have a look at the free Fastone Capture.

As wiz-king, then open paint and use the paste icon top left. Can get a bit confusing as it will show the whole desktop as is and you might not realize it's a screen shot :). To take a screen shot of only sections then use the snipping tool.

AS wiz-king but use Alt+Print Screen. This limits the shot to the current window rather than the whole screen.

Thanks guys, but where is Print Screen? Is it a key on the keyboard or where is it? I can't see it on my keyboard. Thanks.

You might see it as PrtScr with SysRQ underneath on the same key. Could be on the top row to the right.

PrtScn/SysRq is a key on the keyboard, normally top right.

Chronos the 2nd! ScreenHunter works fine. Thanks.
