How to take a Tech Support Screenshot

It always helps when you have a technical problem to take a screenshot of the situation, but you may find yourself asking, "How do I do it?"

2.) Press the PrtScn key, known as Print Screen. Usually located here:

3.) Open your favorite imaging program, such as MSPaint. And go to Edit -> Paste.

4.) Now save the image and make sure to save it as a .JPEG or a .PNG

5.) Head on over to or and upload the image for free!

HTML Code:

There ya go! And dont forget it always helps to have a screenshot.
