I want to take a screen capture of the charts from my HRM software. How do I do that to save it to a .jpg format?

Simultaneously hold down "alt", "ctrl", and the "print scrn" key, then open wordpad and "ctrl", "v". It's not a .jpg file but may accomplish what you want to do.

(1) Just press the "Print screen" button, no need to hit a combo of buttons anymore. Just one press of the "Print screen" button, It should be above the "Insert" button to the right of the letters.

(2) Open up the built in paint program in Windows. Click "Programs > Accessories > Paint". Then click "Paste"

(3) Click "Save as" to save as whatever file type you like.

That is all there is to it.

The above methods don't mention the fact that you can just press the "print screen" key alone and get a copy of the entire desktop without having to press SHIFT or CTRL or ALT first.

Just pressing Print Screen takes a snapshop of the whole desktop.

The SHIFT + Print Screen method also makes a snapshop the whole desktop.

CTRL + ALT + Print Screen makes a snapshop of the open window. Your desktop will not appear in the image file.
