The process of taking screenshots prior Windows 7 was a tiresome job that required many clicks. Then with Windows 7 came the snipping tool which made the process simpler, however it wasn't 100% user-friendly. In Windows 8 however things changed. The screenshot shortcuts of only 2 keys make the procedure straightforward and easy. In the present, Windows 10 is on the horizon. We will explore the various ways in that one can capture photographs within Windows 10.1. The original PrtScn? keyPrtScn? KeyThe? first method is the traditional PrtScn? key. Hit it wherever and the screenshot of the window is saved to the clipboard. Are you looking to save it to a the form of a file? It'll take a few additional clicks. Start paint (or another editing software) and press CTRL+V.This method is ideal if you need to alter the image before using it.2. Shortcut "Win Key + PrtScn? key"Win plus prtscnThis feature was first implemented with Windows 8. The pressing of the Windows key using PrtScn? will create a screenshot immediately to the Screenshots folder in the user's Pictures directory and in .png format. It's no longer opening paint and then copying. It's a real time saver that is the same as Windows 10.3. Shortcut "Alt key + PrtScn? key"Alt plus prtscnThe method was introduced within Windows 8, this shortcut will capture the image of the active or the currently selected window. It's not necessary to crop the area (and change the size). The same thing happens with Windows 10.4. The Snipping ToolSnip_ExampleSnipping? Tool was launched by Microsoft in Windows 7, and available in Widows 10 as well. It comes with a variety of features, like marking, annotating and sending emails. These functions are great for the occasional screenshotter however, for a frequent use (like me) they don't suffice.Snipping_Tool_OptionsYou? can further alter this tool by using the options in the above screenshot. 5. Capturing screenshots using CMDThe majority of people will not make use of CMD to take screenshots, but knowing it can be beneficial is it? It's not as complicated as it appears. CMD by default doesn't provide this feature Therefore, you must install an add-on for free called NirCmd?. After downloading , run it as an administrator (imp) and click transfer into Windows Directory.NirCmd? InstallNow? , open CMD and then write:nircmd.exe savescreenshot "X:\examplescreenshot.png"Here,X is the drive on which you want to save the image,Screenshot example is the name given to the screenshot.Of course, you are able to change the name to suit your preferences However, remember to not add spaces in the name, otherwise it will not work.There are a few alternatives to NirCmd?, such as Screenshot-CMD and imagemagik.NirCmd_SS6. Third Party AlternativesIn? the past, we have been talking about the built-in options. However, external applications are far better in this regard. They are more feature-rich and have a user-friendly interface. I can't recommend any app the best because users' have a variety of choices. Some prefer Skitch and others prefer Snagit. I personally prefer Jing however it might not have a smooth user interface like Skitch or offers as many of the features that Snagit has, however it is the best choice to what I am doing.JingAlso?: How to Capture Screenshots on a MacConclusionScreenshots? can be very useful for helping to solve problems or explaining the situation. Although Windows 10 has improved a many other aspects but there's not a significant change in the way we can take screen shots on Windows operating devices. I would like to see Microsoft will add additional shortcuts to take pictures or gives an overhaul to the Snipping Tool (much needed) overhaul. Until then, pick your preferred option among the choices above.
