How to take a screenshot on PC

Click the button below to get the TweakShot – screen capture tool. Is there a way to save as a file automatically, like on macos where you hit the button and then the file is available on the desktop? Currently I’m using greenshot to mimic that behavior.

  • When you enter a wrong password for Windows 10 computer,Windows will suggest to try other sign-in options.
  • If you hit Alt + PrtScr, Windows 11 will capture just the active window and copy it to your clipboard.
  • Next, press the Alt + F4 keys at the same time.
  • If your laptop doesn’t have built-in Bluetooth, you can use an external Bluetooth device that plugs into a USB port.

For the device you are connecting to your computer, Bluetooth can be determined by checking for the Bluetooth symbol or researching the manufacturer’s documentation or website. Devices such as such mouse or headset should display a symbol indicating Bluetooth support. For devices such as your smartphone OS, check-in the system settings of your smartphone OS. Your options are limited if you are using a smartphone or tablet such as an iPhone or iPad. Apple limits their devices to Internet sharing only over Bluetooth.

Release the mouse when selecting to create the Snip.If you had Full-screen Snip selected, your Snip will automatically be created once you click New. An image of the window will be copied to the clipboard. The dimensions of the image will be determined by the size of the window when the screenshot is captured.You will not receive any confirmation that the screenshot has been taken. Greenshot is another free tool that allows you to edit and customize screenshots, as well as the option to capture a complete scrolling web page. After you capture the screenshot, it’ll be saved to your clipboard and a preview notification will appear in the lower-right corner of your screen.

Open the screen you want to capture and press Win+Shift+S, and the screen grays out and lets you drag the cursor and select the desired area. Furthermore, you can do a lot more to your saved screenshots directly from this folder. You can cut your screenshot, copy, rotate, set it as a background, compress, etc. right from the folder itself. Click on the Share icon as shown in the screenshot above and share it.

After you complete the steps, the adapter will install, and you should be able to start pairing devices to your computer. However, if the adapter wasn’t detected correctly, you may need to install the Bluetooth driver manually. You want to turn on or off your PC’s Bluetooth, but only to find that there is no toggle for the Bluetooth option in the Windows settings.

The Snip & Sketch tool in Windows 10

Sometimes, thinking INSIDE the box is a good thing. Draw a rectangle to throw a little attention at parts of the image. Press the Photo Camera to capture the selected region. PS I do have the latest version of SnagIt (& Camtasia Studio) but do not have it to auto-start with Windows 10 boot.

Press the Finish button to complete the process. In the third box, you’ll need to fill in a password hint. Choose a hint that’s easy to remember, as it’ll make the password recovery process a lot easier in case you forget it.
