Default way – Press Windows button and PrtScn simultaneously, the screenshot would be saved in clipboard. You can paste the image to Paint to save to your disk. Lastly, attach the image on your email. Maybe it’s a little troublesome.

 

You can also consider the free online screenshot. Run the web-based program then click Screenshot button to drag a desired region on your screen. You can then add some marks or annotations with its quick editor if you need. Once the screenshot is done, click the Envelope icon to email your screenshot to others.

You don't need to press the Windows key with the PrntScrn button to take a screenshot, only press on the PrntScrn button. This will take all your monitors in it. If you press on Alt + PrntScrn, it'll only take the current open/active window in screenshot. Otherwise, the easiest way is to use a screenshotting software that allows you to save screenshots, upload them, edit them, etc. all at the same time. I've been using ShareX, a project started on Google Code, for more than a year now and I have to say that it's the best I've ever used. Way more features than greenshot, lightshot, etc. and also, it actually installs like a normal program on your system, so it's not targeted by Antimalware tools such as AdwCleaner.

I use PicPick. I find it easier to use and more intuitive than ShareX. I guess it's a matter of personal preference.

I'll take a look at it when I get home tonight, since the website is blocked by my work proxy. Hard to be easier to use than ShareX, since all you have to do it to take a screenshot and the image is automatically uploaded to imgur, and once done, the URL is stored in your clipboard.

A Thousand Words is another good program.

 

In the lower left portion of the reply box click on More Reply Options.

 

Under Attach Files click on Choose Files and choose the screen shot and choose it.

 

Then click on Attach This File, then click on Add Reply.

 

When I can I will use the Snipping Tool, it's quicker and you can select the area which you want to post.  Use the same method as above to post it in a reply.


Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Irfanview is great as a photo viewer and editor, but I wouldn't use it for it's screenshot feature, too "bloated" for nothing.

It's easier to use third-party programs that automatically upload your screenshots once you take them when you post them a lot online, like I do :P

I absolutely agree. I hate seeing attached screenshots!
