I've noticed that since I was updated to Windows 10, the "PrtScn" key on my keyboard doesn't work. I've resorted to using an app called Skitch to take screenshots unless I can find another, better, faster, shorter way to capture an image of my screen.

I've had Windows 10 about a month, and am still not necessarily a fan.

Look on the Start Menu. Scroll down to "Snip & Sketch." It's the Windows 10 equivalent of what Windows 7 called the "Snipping Tool." It lets you drag the mouse to create a screenshot and then mark it up if needed.

"That sounded stupid, didn't it?"—Kolzig, to the same reporter a few seconds later.

I can still use Print Screen on my Windows 10 computer.

On both my home computer and my work computer, which both run Windows 10, PrintScreen works just fine, and Snipping Tool is still called Snipping Tool.

However, Windows 10 has been known to cause some issues with certain models of keyboards, especially messing with the functionality of the 10-key number pad.  Sir Belkins:  you might try these suggestions.

Well, it's not a Belkin keyboard. It's a Dell.  :-D

That's my point.  When we upgraded to Windows 10 here at work, several of our keyboards starting having issues they hadn't had with previous versions of Windows.  We were able to fix the issues by doing some Googling and downloading a fix-it patch.  Read up on suggestions online and see if one works for you.

Have you tried pressing print screen while holding down the windows button? The screen should have a temporary black shade to it when a screenshot is taken. The Windows button must be pressed first for this to work.
