In today’s world one wants to capture everything, isn’t it?

Option 1: Screenshots using print screen PrtScr key.
We have a PrtScr key in the keyboard to take screenshots quickly, all you need to do just hit that key then your desktop screen will be captured in the clipboard, it will look like nothing, but the screen has been captured, you can open MSPaint and press Control key +V (paste) then captured screen will be appeared in MSPaint window, you can save it too.
If you don’t want to go to MSPaint and directly want to save it then you have to press the “Windows logo key + PrtScn.” If you are using a tablet, press the “Windows logo button + volume down button, you will notice a flash blink screen as you hit these keys which means the current desktop screen has been captured, you can find these in C:\users\Raj\Pictures\Screensots, that’s it.

Microsoft has come up with a great screenshot taking the tool in windows 10, I personally use it many times on a daily basis to capture the screenshot undoubtedly it’s a great tool and a free tool. The cool feature of this tool is the delay option, this allows us to capture screenshots of pop-up menus and tooltips, etc.
