    How do I Print Screen on a laptop?


    I'm on a laptop, but i don't know how to do the Print Screen! I know that on a normal computer, it's a button all by itself, but on a laptop.. it's with insert! what other button do i have to press to get it to take a screenshot?

    It should be a button labelled on your laptop. It is on mine.

    If not, just search for 'Print Screen' in Windows Help (if this is the OS your using).

    actually... my button for print screen is with the insert button... wut other button do i press to get it to print screen? because if i only press the print screen button, it does nothing. it just acts as an insert button...

    Probably there is an additional META-Key, "Fn", that you have to press and hold. Sometimes you have to switch "Num Lock" off. But you should read your notebook's documentation, this depends on your specific model.
