How to take a screenshot in Windows 8?

How do I take a screenshot in Windows 8? Is it supported natively or do I need to install additional software?

Some methods to take screenshot in Windows 8. When we want to take screenshot, we only need to press PrtSc (Print Screen) on the keyboard and then press “Ctrl + V” to copy the screenshot to Paint. Snippingtool is integrated in window 8 with simple functions of taking and editing screenshots. To open Snippingtool, we only need to press Window + R, enter “Snippingtool” and select OK . If you don’e like either of the methods that Microsoft provides to take screenshots in Windows 8, you can use a 3rd party software.

It's very easy to take printer screen from windows 8. You have just press windows + print screen tab.


Just as jimlynch said last week, you can press the "Windows" and "PrtScn" keyboard shortcuts to take a screenshot on Windows 8 computer. As you'd expected, this method is definitely easy to use yet requires additional tools to make some annotations or even upload the screenshots for storage. To handle this, you can make use of the professional screenshot tools. It can meet all your needs of taking screenshots, making quick edits, uploading and sharing image.

"To take a screenshot and save it as a file. Press the Windows logo key +PrtScn. Or, if you're using a tablet, press the Windows logo button + the volume down button. The screen will dim for a moment when the screen is copied and saved as a file in the Screenshots folder (which is in your Pictures folder)."
