    Personally, I simply mash the button. This automagically saves a .png capture of your screen to the Pictures folder.

    Well written 'ible, though. Thanks for taking the time.

    Before the word button, it failed to print the. words "PrintScreen".

    How odd. I guess &gt and &lt symbols are not allowed.
