And here we are with a new super guide dedicated to TechReen readers. Today in particular I appeal to all users who have already downloaded and installed the new Windows 11 operating system and are looking for a way to take screenshots on their PC.
Without getting lost in the chatter, let’s see together all the methods at your disposal to take screenshots on Windows 11 without downloading or installing additional programs.
How to Screenshot Windows PC 11
As you probably know, even on Windows 11, as on other Microsoft operating systems, there are numerous methods to take and take screenshots.
Specifically, there are numerous keyboard shortcuts that can be used to quickly take a screenshot or system screen.
In case you don’t remember the combinations to press, I’ll refresh your memory with this guide.
Windows Screenshot 11 – Pressing the PrtSc key
The first shortcut to take a screenshot is to press PrtSc on the keyboard. Pressing this key will copy the screenshot of the entire screen, with all windows open, to the clipboard.
Note that this will not directly save the screenshot. You can paste the screenshot (using Ctrl + V) to Word or Paint and save it from there.
The screenshot will remain on the clipboard only until you take another screenshot or copy some text.
Windows Screenshot 11 – Pressing the PrtSc + Windows combination
The second way to take a screenshot on Windows 11 is to press the PrtSc + Windows key combination on the PC. This will directly save the screenshot to the PC memory (the previous method, however, copied it to the clipboard).
Windows 11 Screenshot – Pressing PrtSc + ALT
As a third method, you can take screenshots on Windows 11 by pressing the PrtSc + ALT key combination on your keyboard. Pressing these keys will copy the screenshot ONLY of the open or active program/screen to the clipboard.
Windows 11 Screenshot – Pressing fn + PrtSc
As a 4th method, you can take screenshots on Windows 11 by just pressing the fn + PrtSc key combination on your keyboard. Pressing these keys will give you the option to select the area you want to screenshot just like the Snipping tool.
Windows 11 Screenshot – Using the Snipping Tool
Finally, you can use the Snipping Tool to take a screenshot on Windows 11. It is a comfortable and complete program that allows you to take screenshots and screenshots on Windows 11. Using it is very simple.
To use the Snipping Tool with a mouse and keyboard
- Select Start, type Snipping Tool, and select it from the search results
- To create a new screenshot using the same mode you used last, select New. Alternatively, to choose the type of capture you want, select Mode (or in previous versions of Windows, the arrow next to New ) and then choose a capture mode. While creating free-form or rectangular snaps, use your mouse to select the area you want to capture
- Use the Save and Copy buttons at the top of the capture to save or copy it to the clipboard
The available capture modes are free format, rectangular, windowed, and full screen.
To use the Snipping Tool with the mouse only
- To open the Snipping Tool, press the Start key, type Snipping Tool, then press Enter. There is no shortcut key to open the Snipping Tool
- To choose the type of capture you want, press the ALT + M keys and use the arrow keys to choose Free Format Capture, Rectangular, Window, or Full-Screen Capture, then press ENTER. ALT + M is only available with the latest Windows 10 update. When creating a rectangular capture, hold down SHIFT and use the arrow keys to select the area you want to capture
- To create a new screenshot using the same mode you used last, press the ALT + N keys
- To save the capture, press the CTRL + S To copy it to the clipboard, press the CTRL + C keys
