Using Windows 8 is very different to Windows 7 or Vista. So when I went to perform the task of taking a screen shot I found that the usual PRTSC and then paste into Paint or word would  not work.

So how do you take a screen shot in Windows 8?

To my surprise the whole process has been made alot easier.

Simply by pressing the FN (key) + Windows (key) + PRTSC (key) and you will see a slight dulling of the screen.


Your Screen shot will be automatically saved in a file called Screen Shots in your Pictures folder. You can move it up to Favourites like I have done.

 So as you can see taking a screenshot in Windows 8 is simple as 1 2 3.
