I’m reblogging this great post from Jacqui. Loads of useful information. Thanks Jacqui.
Tech Tips for Writers is an occasional post on overcoming Tech Dread. I’ll cover issues that friends, both real-time and virtual, have shared. Feel free to post a comment about a question you have. I’ll cover it in a future Tip.
Q: I push ‘PrintScreen’ (or PrtScn) and nothing happens.
I have to teach this as a full-blown lesson in my classes because it is so counter-intuitive.
- When you push PrintScreen, it saves a copy of your screen to the clipboard. Now, you must tell the computer where to put it.
