To take a snapshot picture of all or a region of your computer screen and then save that image to a file. This is done with either a third-party software application or may be included in the operating system. Some things can't be captured as easily on some video cards, such as animation playback windows (such as DVD players) or game screens.

To take a screen capture in Microsoft Windows, just hit the Print Screen key, then load Microsoft Paint, paste the image, and then save it.
