Taking a screenshot is like taking a picture of your computer or phone screen. Here are the steps to do it:

  1. Find the "Print Screen" or "PrtScn" button on your keyboard. It's usually located near the top right of the keyboard.

  2. Press the "Print Screen" or "PrtScn" button once. This will capture an image of whatever is currently displayed on your screen.

  3. Open a program like "Paint" or "Word" and click on "Edit" at the top left corner of the screen. Then, click on "Paste" in the drop-down menu that appears. This will paste the screenshot into the program.

  4. Finally, you can save the screenshot by clicking on "File" and then "Save As" and giving the file a name.
