Q. What's the best way to take a screenshot in Windows?
A. Typically you do not want the image of the whole desktop
but just one window so:
- Click on the title bar of the window in question
- If you are taking a screenshot of a browser window usually
the address bar is important so make sure its present.
- Press <alt><print-screen>
(That's the Alt key and the PrintScreen key at the same time)
Now you have an image of the window in your clipboard. Next you
want to save it to disk.
- Start Paint
- File > Paste
- File > Save As
- Save the file as a PNG image
(JPG compression hurts the image, BMP is huge)
