You can use the PrintSc key or the key combination related to the PrintSc key on the keyboard to take a screenshot. Below we introduce three ways to take a screenshot related to the PrintSc key:

(2) Use the shortcut key Win+PrintSc

Press the shortcut key Win+PrintSc to take a full-screen screenshot automatically, and the image will be saved in the clipboard and the screenshot folder at the same time (The folder path: C:\Users\your name\Pictures\Screenshots).

(3) Use the shortcut key Alt+ PrintSc

4. Use the Edge browser

The edge browser is a browser that comes with Windows System, so it can be regarded as a built-in screenshot tool, but it has limitations. It can only intercept the content of the edge browser webpage, and cannot intercept other windows and desktop content. However, it has a powerful function, which can intercept long pictures of web pages.

You can right-click the blank space of the webpage that needs to be captured, find Web capture, and then select the Capture area or Capture full page according to your needs.
