Taking a screenshot is always useful. You never know when you might need to capture a moment from your screen. And in Windows 10, creating a screenshot is not much more complicated than in previous versions of Windows, as there are a couple of ways to capture a screenshot in Windows 10.

Press Print Screen on your keyboard

Probably the fastest way to create a screenshot in Windows is to press Print Screen key on your keyboard. Pressing this button will automatically capture the current scene on your screen and you’ll be able to save the picture through some picture-editing software, like Paint. Here’s exactly what you need to do:

  1. When you want to make a screenshot, press Print Screen key on your keyboard
  2. Open Paint and go to Paste
  3. If you want to, you can crop your image or edit it
  4. Go to Save, name your screenshot and save it to a desired location

This is probably the most common way of taking a screenshot in Windows operating systems, but you can try some other way, if you prefer.

Use Microsoft Snipping Tool

Using Windows’ built-in Snipping Tool is probably the fastest way of capturing a screenshot in Windows, but it’s not as popular as using the Print Screen key. To take a screenshot with Snipping Tool, do the following:

  1. Go To Search, type snipping tool, and open Snipping Tool
  2. Go to New
  3. Mark the part of the screen you want to capture with a rectangle
  4. Go to Save Snip

As we expect Snipping Tool to receive the first update since its introduction in Windows 10, you will have even more options of taking a screenshot.

You can also use some third-party software for creating a screenshot, but since Windows itself offers a couple of options for this, using a third party software is not necessary, and I recommend you to stick with methods I showed you above.
