Windows – print screen for start view on Windows 8

start-menuwindows 8

Where is the folder of pictures where I took for the screenshot of start view on Windows 8 after I pressed the PrintScrn | Sysrq button on my keyboard.

Or is this key functional for the Start view?

  • Press Win + PrtScr and the screenshot will be saved as a .png to your Pictures Library under the Screenshot directory.

    Libraries\Pictures\Screenshots\Screenshot (1).png

    Another way to capture your screen is to use PrtScr, which copies the screenshot to your keyboard. Alt + PrtScr does the same thing, but only captures the current window, which is really useful!

    However, my favorite way to capture screenshots is Steps Recorder.

    Once you start recording, it will record every step you take, whether that be a mouse click or a key press. Once you're done hit Stop Record and it'll give you a collection of photos documenting your steps.
