     If you click the keyboard combination of the Windows Key + Print Screen, Windows 8 will capture the current screenshot and save it automatically in the Pictures Library. If you are on a tablet the combination is the Windows Key + Volume Down.

    My first time I googled it and for some reason it seemed hard and complicated to follow the instructions LOL.I scare myself with the computer ...dam yung'uns know'n it all...... my teens give each other "a look " and ever so subtly roll their eyes and assumed a pained patient expression when I ask for help...next time I will ask cm. : D

    That's funny!

    My son uses Macs in school, and he has one at home. I prefer PCs, especially since that's what I use at work. So he's no help to me whatsoever when it comes to computers....LOL I usually have to learn it myself or google how to do it.

    ...I should add that he's pretty jealous of my Windows 8 phone and wants one now. So I might eventually convert him to PCs over time...

    Can't help. I HATE my Windows 8 laptop so much that I use my moms laptop.
