For this type of saving, you don’t need to install any special programs. All you need is to open the required tab on the screen (which you would like to save) and press the Print Screen key (you will find it next to the F12 key). Then open Paint (it is in all versions of new versions of Windows – 7, 8, 10, and earlier) and paste the required screen ( Ctrl + v for the “Insert” function in the context menu).
Then you save the image within the format you would like (we advise you to save it in jpeg format if you would like to be ready to upload the image to the Internet later). In this way, you can save a screenshot of the entire laptop screen. If you only need an image of a separate element (for example, a folder or a video player), then press Alt together with the Print Screen key. Then everything is the same. So, you’ll get obviate the sometimes cumbersome work of image editing and reserve it within the form you already need.
