Method 2: Using the Print Screen Key

Almost all keyboards have a Print Screen key on them. Most of the time, it will be abbreviated as PrtSc or PrtScr. Without ShareX installed pressing, it won’t appear to do much.

When you hit it, Windows will save your screen to the copy buffer of your computer. You can then paste it into a different program.
