How to Capture and Save your Screen for Review Verification
Step 1: Capture the image — Assuming the area you want to capture is displayed on your screen, press the “Print Screen” (often shortened to “PrtScn”) key, typically located in the upper-right corner of your keyboard, to capture a screenshot of your entire display. Alternatively, press “Alt + Print Screen” to capture a screenshot of the active window. If you’re on a laptop, you may need to press “Fn” + “Print Screen” if your laptop has another feature assigned to that particular key.
Step 2: Open Paint — In Windows 10, you can open the Start menu, go to “All Apps”, and scroll through the alphabetical list until you find Paint.
In Windows 8, press the Windows key to open the start screen. Afterward, click the down arrow in the bottom left, press “Ctrl” + “Tab,” or swipe downward from the center of the display to access the Apps View. From there, select Paint.
For Windows 7, click the Start menu, navigate to the “Accessories” folder — and click “Paint”. The icon depicts a painting palette with a brush on the right side, but it will vary slightly depending on your operating system.
All three iterations of Windows also include Windows Search, which can be used to find Paint by searching for — you guessed it — “Paint.”
Step 3: Paste the screenshot — Once open, click the “Paste” button in the upper-left corner of the program, choose “Edit” then “Paste”, or press “Ctrl + V” on the keyboard to paste your screenshot. Again, the exact navigation and wordage will vary slightly in different versions of Windows, but the keyboard shortcut will remain the same.
Step 4: Save the screenshot — Perform any edits you want, such as cropping the image to a specified area, and click the main “File” option in the upper-left corner. Afterward, select “Save as,” title the new file, choose a save location, and select jpg as your file format from the drop-down menu. Click the gray “Save” button in the bottom-right corner when finished.
