      Press the ALT button on your keyboard (there's two on your keyboard pick either one) and at the same time press the PRINT SCREEN button (also called the SysRq button on top right). Press them at the same time.

    • If you want to capture the whole screen just press PRINT SCREEN button without ALT. Personally I find the ALT+PRINT SCREEN to work better on the internet and the PRINT SCREEN only to work better when off line. Not sure why ;-)
