How to take and email a screenshot

It is easier than you think to take a screenshot from your PC screen and email it . Here is how it’s done.

  1. Make sure you have the page or programme you want to take the screenshot of on your screen ready.
  2. Press the button called “PrtScn”, usually top right on a keyboard, it stands for “Print Screen”. In old PCs this was used to literally print the screen contents to a printer as it would have had text on t.
  3. You can either paste this right into your email, or edit it a little as it may be a bit wide.
  4. To edit it, open an image editing programme, something like “Paint” and paste it into the programme.
  5. Make your edits, maybe crop it a little or resize it
  6. Select the area you want to use and “Copy” it.
  7. Next open your email programme and simply paste it in to the message

Here is a video to show you how easy it is to put all that together and send a screenshot
