screenshot key won't work in windows 10

Since the last lot of windows 10 updates I can no longer get my screenshot key to work. How can I restore its function? I am a technophobe so please keep instructions simple. Thanks in anticipation.

The way it works has changed. The screenshot is now saved to a folder on your Onedrive.

Many thanks Mohic. Problem solved. I looked in OneDrive and there they were. What confused me was that there used to be a notification come up when one took a screenshot but now nothing appears. I was getting quite frustrated but now you have solved the problem.

For Snipping tool go to start, windows accessories you can then pin it to start or even the task bar.

Just tried:

Pressed Print Screen Key > then opened Paint 3D and Pasted > Saved that as a .jpg into my Pictures Folder.

Is that not what is working for you?
