    I've used the PrtScn button for many years but my new Samsung NP350E7C-A04UK laptop doesn't have a PrtScn button even though its a full 102 key keyboard. I have run the On Screen Keyboard (OSK) which has a PrtScn key but it prints the keyboard as well. Pressing Alt+PrtScn won't take a snapshot of the window on top.

    Hello Keith, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    Alt+PrtScn
    is the shortcut for taking a screenshot of the active window instead of for the new screen shot feature that this tutorial is for.

    For laptops and notebooks, you may need to press either the Windows+Ctrl+PrtScn or Windows+Fn+PrtScn keys instead of just the Windows+PrtScn keys for the new screenshot feature in the tutorial.

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn

    Thanks Brink.

    I've actually found it now. On this Samsung laptop you press Fn+Alt+Insert keys to get a screendump but that only take a screendump of the active window like Alt+PrtScn on any other computer not the full screen.

    That's an odd set of keys to press for a screenshot.

    Usually it's the Alt key being included is what makes the screen shot only for the active window. Does pressing the Fn+Insert keys give you a full screen shot?

    You might also try these keyboard shortcuts below to see if one may work for the new capture screen shot feature from the tutorial. I'm guessing the one in red may be the correct one for you.

    Windows+Ctrl+Insert

    Windows+Fn+Insert

    Windows+
    Insert
