How can I take screenshot on Windows 8?

You can take a screenshot and automatically save it as a file, take a screenshot without saving it as a file, or take a screenshot of only one window (instead of the whole screen):
1. To take a screenshot and save it as a file, press the Windows logo key + PrtScn. If you're using a tablet, press the Windows logo button + the volume down button. The screen will dim for a moment when the screen is copied and saved as a file in the Screenshots folder (which is in your Pictures folder).
2. To take a screenshot (without saving it), press PrtScn. A picture of the screen is copied and you can paste it wherever you'd like.
3. To take a screenshot of only one window, tap or click the window you want to capture and then press Alt + PrtScn. A picture of the window is copied and you can paste it wherever you'd like.
Note that on some keyboards, PrtScn might appear as PrtSc or a similar abbreviation. Certain laptops and other devices don't have a PrtScn key or might use a different key combination to take screenshots. Check the manual that came with your laptop or device for more info.
Another way to capture a picture of part of the screen is to use the Windows Snipping Tool. To learn more, see here.
