A new tutorial titled How to create a screenshot and automatically save it as a file in Windows 8 was added by Lawrence Abrams. Please use this topic to discuss any aspect of this tutorial.

A brief excerpt of the tutorial can be found here:

In the past, the built-in method to create a screenshot in Windows was to use Alt+PrintScreen or PrintScreen to copy a screenshot into the clipboard. You would then have to paste that image into another program that has the ability to save it as an image file. Though this method works, it was inconvenient, required an extra program, and was confusing for less experienced computer users. With the release of Windows 8, Microsoft included a really useful feature where you can automatically take a screen shot and save it as a file. There is only one issue with this method and that is to automatically create a file you will be taking a screenshot of the entire screen and not just a particular Window.

We hope you find this tutorial helpful.
