I need to take a picture of my desktop, and I don't know how to do this. I know about 'Print Screen' button, but when I press it nothing happens. I think it's actually normal that nothing happens, but what to do next? I know of some programs that do this, but i am asking for that 'Print Screen' button. :thumbsup:
I have actually find the solution in some topic, but I can't remember which one, and I can't find it!

When you press the Print Screen button, the computer saves a picture of your Desktop to the clipboard.
So, open up MS Paint, select the "Edit" menu, then select "Paste" and a picture of your Desktop will be pasted into the MS Paint program. You can then save that picture.

You can also select the current window by pressing the "Alt" key while pressing Print Screen. Then only the current window will be copied to the clipboard.

Hi lost case.

You asked about the SNAG IT program. That is what it is for. Check out the link in the other post.

Cheers
