The Gateway laptop comes with several ways for you to take screenshots. There are two common methods of taking a screenshot for Gateway laptops: using the keyboard or using the built-in tools. Which method should you use? Let’s take a look at what you need to know!
How To Take A Screenshot On A Gateway Laptop
- Go to the screen you want to capture
- By pressing “Print Screen” on your keyboard, a screenshot of your entire screen will be saved as a .png file in your Pictures folder.
- You can open the .png file in an image editing program like paint or Gimp.
- Now you should have a screenshot of the entire screen
Additionally, you can use the following methods:
Press “Ctrl” + “Print Screen” – This will take a screenshot of your entire screen. However, this time the screenshot will be saved to your desktop as a jpg file. It’s the same as above, but your desktop now contains a jpg file instead of a png.
You can use your 3rd party tools if you don’t like using the keyboard to take screenshots. There are many screenshot tools you can use to take screenshots of your screen. Third-party tools can even save screenshots as .png or .jpeg files like the keyboard method.
In summary, you should understand the advantages and disadvantages of each method. It depends on your needs and how often you take screenshots whether you need to use a 3rd party app or keyboard shortcut. Ultimately, taking screenshots is easier if you know what’s available on your laptop.
