I have had difficulty with technical support from a VPN provider (PureVPN out of Hong Kong).  The on-line chat support person had me try uninstalling their VPN client application, removing the program data for that application, and then downloading the application again and re-installing.  At which point I seemed to be seeing a different user interface (UI) than the one he was talking about!  He asked me to send him a screen shot of what I saw -- so I asked him how do I do that?  At which point he seemed to give up and asked me to send an e-mail to their technical support address.


I did that.  But meanwhile, how do I capture a screen shot under Windows 10?

That link ls useful, giving a good run down of most options but. there is another excellent one available which may already be on your Windows 10 (it was on mine) or can be installed for free from the link. below. As a Microsoft Garage Project it is less well known and easily confused wit the much more basic Snipping Tool. I is just called Snip or Office Snip and records user defined screens \ windows, videos, sound,  hand drawn notes, pictures  to a handy visual library, as well as copying to clipboard.

I still use ALT+PrtSc like I always did.  Works like a charm.
