    Default Screen Capture

    I've got a Thinkpad T61 and I'd like to take a screenshot, but I can't figure out how to do it.

    A crude method is to use the printscreen key and then paste into paint...

    Thanks for your answer. The problem is that I can't find that key. There's one that says "Imp Pt", but it doesn't work.

    Or if you're running vista use the snipping tool. http://lifehacker.com/228885/windows...-snipping-tool

    What country keyboard layout are you using? On the US keyboard layout, the print screen button should be the one directly to the right of the power button.

    The printscreen key may be labelled "PrtSc".

    Understand that nothing will appear to happen when you press the key. No sounds, popups, bells, whistles, flashing lights, or fireworks. The system just quietly captures the screen image into the copy/paste buffer so you can paste into MS Paint or any other program.
