For those of you who have a laptop and supported Windows 10, you can do some ways screenshots on your laptop. Screenshot activity in windows 10 can already be for the entire screen or as a screen only.

How to screenshot using keyboard key combinations
The easiest way to screenshot on a computer screen is to press the Print Screen or PrtScn keys on the keyboard. On some laptops or PCs, Windows 10 provides several variations of PrtScn:
Press Alt + PrtScn. This copies the active window to the clipboard, which you can paste into another program.

Press the Windows key + Shift + S. The screen dims and the mouse pointer changes. You can drag to select the part of the screen you want to take a picture of. The screenshot will be copied to the clipboard, which you can paste into another program. (This shortcut only works if you're installing the latest version of Windows 10, called the Windows 10 Creators Update.)

Press the Windows key + PrtScn. This screenshot process will save the entire screen as an image file. You can find it in the Pictures folder in a subfolder called Screenshots.

Use snipping tool
Microsoft provides a much more flexible screenshot app with Windows 10, called the snipping tool. You can use the Snipping Tool to take a screenshot and save it as an image file without first pasting the screenshot to another program.
Open the Snipping Tool program and select the screenshot shape you want.
The screen freezes and you can select or view which pages will be screenshotted
If you want to edit it first, Snipping Tool provides an edit feature inside. Otherwise, you can save it directly by pressing the file in the top left corner and selecting Save As.

1. Press the PrtScn or Print Screen button
