My new keyboard doesn't have PrintScreen!

Posted (edited)

I've bought a Bluetooth mini keyboard that doesn't have the PrintScreen button. How can I change one button and have it act as the PrntScreen? Or maybe define a shortcut for a combination of two keys that would act as the PrntScreen.

Depending on the board it can be under a function layer. It would be better for you to just tell us the specific keyboard.

PowerToys also has a keyboard remapper.

 

Note that I edited your message because the text was manually set to black which is unreadable on the forum's dark theme.

Personally i used Lightshot to make this screenshot.
Which you can setup to use any key or combo. (There are other options)

 

 

ps as you can see on screenshot, using the dark/night theme on this forum your text is unreadable. 😉 nvm already fixed i see. 😄

Windows key + Shift + S  for the snipping tool 

 

Or use Irfanview or some other tool ...  irfanview has lots of screen capture stuff  (hotkey, or every n seconds, show picture in viewer or save to disk automatically with unique file name that can include date, time , counters etc

Yeah PrintScreen for screenshots is just extra steps, just press Win+Shift+S. You can drag a box around things, select just a window or do a full screen shot, copies it right to your clipboard or you can draw on it.

No third part software necessary.

I was already familiar with Windows snipping tool. The thing is, sometimes I'm watching a video on Youtube. By pressing the Windows Key + Printscreen a screenshot is saved to a place I've already specified. With Snipping Tools, I'd have to pause the video and save the screenshot manually.

 

Also, I feel like the quality of the screenshots with Prinscreen is higher but I'm not sure.

 

The Keyboard I have is Xiaomii Air 85 which is not very common! I googled to see if Prinscreen is under a function layer and couldn't find anything.

 

So, right now, my only option is to install one of these programs:

irfanview

Lightshot

PowerToys

KeyTweak

Unless you tell Windows to change the behavior.

Settings > Accessibility > Keyboard > Print Screen

 

But yes, Win+Shift+S is the alternative keyboard compabination.

Or as mentioned, you can get Microsoft PowerToys, and use the keyboard remapper:

Is there a way to take a screenshot that's automatically saved somewhere without Printscreen?

Let me explain. When I press the windows button and the printscreen button, a screenshot is automatically saved in a folder. I know I can take screenshots with pressing Windows+Shift+S and the snipping tool, but they are not automatically saved. As you said, they are saved in the clipboard.

See Irfanview and the picture I posted above ...

 

select After the capture :  save captured image as file and select the folder where you want the images to be saved

note you need to launch irfanview and press C or go in Options > Capture/Screenshot [C] to pop this window and click Start and then you can leave it minimized  (there may be an option to only see it in system tray as an icon)

Yes.
[Win] + [Print Screen] will take a screen shot of the full screen and save it under: Pictures\Screenshots.

[Win] + [Alt] + [Print Screen] will take a screen shot of the running application or game and save it under: Video\Captures (yes, video, even though it is a picture. This is because it was designed for working in games via Windows Game Bar, but works on the desktop applications just a swell, just the location is strange). Game bar is accessible via [Win] + [G] at all times.

 

Now I know you said you don't have a [Print Screen] key, but this is were remapping that key should be explored.
