    The key loads the screen into your clipboard. Then you need to open an imaging app, like IrfanView, Paint, etc. and paste the picture there.

    Find what you want to take a screenshot of,
    1)Hit Alt and PrtScrn on your keyboard at the same time.
    2)Open Paint
    3)On the Edit menu click Paste
    4)On the file menu click Save-save to a location of your choice
    5)Paste screenshot here
