    Conversation with my mom the other day:

    Mom - How do you use the screenshot button on the keyboard? (She has a Windows work laptop)

    Me - Just press it.

    Mom - I did that! It didn't do anything.

    Me - Lol it's not supposed to do anything. It takes a picture of whatever is on your screen and you have to paste it somewhere like Paint to save the image.

    Mom - Ohhh that's too much work. I use Snippit (or whatever the built in Windows screenshot app is called) and send it to myself in an email.
    -------------------------
    She takes a screenshot, pastes it in an email, and sends it to herself to save it. Hm.

    Then she told me tonight that she needed to screenshot these questions in a quiz she was taking. I kid you not - she took a screenshot of 2 questions at a time, pasted them in an email that she sent to herself, and then printed the email. She did this for 40 questions so she printed out 20 emails with screenshots of quiz questions. She also printed out the 200 page manual she needs to study and deleted the pdf. Mom, seriously? What if you need to find something in that 200 page manual? It's so much easier to ctrl + F to find a specific word or phrase. Ohh it doesn't matter she says, there's an index.

    Since Windows 8 you can win + print scr to save to file in your pictures directory.

    And you can also upload it to imgur directly

    This is kind of cute story. She at least knows what to do and doing it by herself. Unlike, others who leave it all to you to understand their problem and provide solution. Kudos to your mom. ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘

    You can also use WIN + W to take a sc. Also you can crop and draw onto it. Idk why this feature is so hidden.
