Capture Screen Shot On Windows 8 And Save It Direct Just One Click

Previous Windows versions too had in built capability of capturing screen or taking screenshot but with Windows 8, it is improved. Unlike, saving the image in clipboard which required you to save in Micosoft Paint like Image editing tools, Windows 8 can capture and save the screen shot image directly.

Press Win+PrntScr button and you will notice screen flickers and screenshot is captured and give capture sound.

It should be noted that inbuilt screenshot tool captures complete screen. If you want a tool to capture single window or specific area on screen, you can download ScreenPresso which is a free alternative of Snagit.

All screenshots taken are saved directly as image file (PNG) in a directory. And this screenshot folder of Windows 8 is in Pictures folder which can be accessed from User’s library.

Screenshot images filenames are saved in this manner “Screenshot (X)” where X is the number count.

It also works the old way! This function not only saves the screenshot as image but also in your clipboard. So, go to Paint or any Image editor and click Paste to get the image there instantly.
