    Hi,

    I have an E-Machine with XP Home. On the keyboard there is a key that says "Print Screen" on the top of the key. Then there is a line. Under the line it says "SysRq". How do I print the screen? Do I hold down the shift key & press the Print Screen key? Nothing happened when I did that. Thanks.

    Print screen saves an image of your current screen to the clipboard. Once you hit printscreen you can open up any image editor (even ms paint) and simply press paste via the edit menu or ctrl+v. Then you can save the image any way you choose

    And, in addition, Alt + Print Screen will do the same for just the active window.
