    Can't take screenshots of any games


    (I hope I put this in the correct forum).

    I was playing Star Wars: The Old Republic on my PC and when I check my screenshot folder, I noticed all of the screenshots I took were just black. I am able to take screenshots of my desktop and of different websites, but not when I play games. Is there a way to fix this?

    Hi. You can always use Compatibility Mode (Windows XP) which solved my problems with Print Screen
