How do I take a screenshot?
press PrtScn = Windows captures the entire screen and copies it to the (invisible) clipboard.
Where can I find that key?

Hold down Alt and press PrtScn = Windows captures only the currently active window and copies it to the clipboard.
I guess it’s in the clipboard now. How can I paste it into a document or something?Hold down Ctrl and press V = Windows pastes the screenshot (that is in the clipboard) into a document or image you are currently editing.
Where should I paste it? I just need a (graphics) file.
Start “Paint” -> Paste -> Save
How do I take a screenshot and have it directly as a file?
Hold down Windows Key and press PrtScn = Windows (8 or 10) captures the entire screen and saves it as a file to your Pictures > Screenshots folder.
Is there a dedicated program for taking screenshots? How can I find it?
