As simple as it may appear, some people frequently copy the information they require with the click of a mouse in order to save what they require. However, if the data or visual representation of data cannot be readily duplicated, copying and pasting will not operate.
A screenshot is essentially a system-captured image of the information, data, or visual representation of data that is displayed on the screen of a computer or mobile device. Because it captures an image of the content displayed on a screen, it is also known as a screen grab or screen capture.
The screenshot capabilities of any device are essentially taken by a command prompt that is provided to the operating system via the press of one or a few buttons. Recent developments in snapshot technology allow us to record whatever happens on the screen in real-time, However, in order to keep things straightforward, we will only go over how to take a screenshot on an ASUS laptop.
There are various methods for taking a screenshot on a Windows laptop that will enhance the pleasure and overall user experience of recording stuff on a screen in a more integrated manner. Hundreds, if not thousands, of new applications are being created to satisfy particular consumer demands.
How to Capture a Screenshot on an ASUS Laptop
The simple method to take a screenshot on an Asus laptop is as follows:
- Open the page you want to capture a screenshot of on a Windows laptop.
- Tap the [PrtSc] button on your keyboard once to capture the screen.
- Launch an image editing program like Paint or Gimp.
- Copy the screenshot by pressing [Ctrl] + V on your keyboard.
- Save the document.
Method 1: On Windows, use the keyboard shortcut PrtScn (Print Screen) or CTRL+PrtScn
The first method is quite simple to grasp. To take a screenshot, simply press and hold the PrtSc button once. If that does not work, your system will require you to simultaneously press the Control (Ctrl) button in the bottom-left corner of the keyboard and the Print Screen (PrtSc) button in the upper-right corner of the keyboard on any laptop or desktop computer.
To view the screenshot, the user must open paint or another document and hit Ctrl+V to paste the screenshot to view the captured content. This is the simplest method for capturing a screen if the information provided does not allow the user to copy and paste it.
Method 2: Use the Windows+PrtScn Keyboard Shortcut
It is a more user-friendly method of taking a screenshot on an Asus laptop. Even though the PrtSc button alone is sufficient to take a screenshot, taking a screenshot in this manner ensures that the screenshot was taken and saved. To complete the screenshot process, the user must simultaneously press the Windows and PrtSc buttons.
The screen will immediately flash, assuring the user that the screenshot was automatically captured and saved. It is especially useful when the task at hand is sensitive and requires concrete proof that the screen and its contents were captured. A screenshot taken in this manner can be found in the Pictures section of a computer, where it is also saved in a folder called Screenshots.
Method 3: Making Use of the “Snipping Tool”
The Snipping Tool is easily accessible in any ASUS laptop. It is a special capturing tool provided by Windows that can be found in any version of the Windows operating system. This programme not only allows you to capture a screenshot, but it also enables you to crop the screenshot to remove any undesirable stuff. So, if you want to use this handy little application, simply press the Windows key on your keyboard.
Enter “SNIPPING TOOL” in the search box. The results will be displayed, and you can then select the Snipping Tool application. A window will appear with a variety of screenshot features such as a Free-Form, Rectangular, Window, or Full-Screen snip that the traditional PrtSc option for taking screenshots does not have.
Furthermore, the Snipping Tool includes delayed reaction, allowing you to select an area and snap a screenshot within one to five seconds. The snipping tool has a few advantages above a standard screenshot option, such as the ability to navigate among screenshots, create GIFs, and save to a library.
Method 4: Make Use of Extensions/Plugins
There are even additional options in the software marketplace for taking screenshots on an ASUS Laptop based on user requirements, as a simple PrtSc screenshot may not always work for unusual usage of visual content.
Well-known screenshot extensions include Lightshot, GoFullPage, FireShot, Nimbus Screenshot & Video Recorder, HTML Element Screenshot, and others. These are usually free aftermarket screenshot choices. Also available in the Chrome Web Store.
Furthermore, the extensions are not limited to the Chrome browser. Except for Safari, these extensions/plugins are simple to install in Firefox, Brave, Opera, Vivaldi, Edge Browser, UC Browser, and other browsers. As previously stated, some of these extensions/plugins have additional features when compared to a traditional screenshot method, such as editing options, cloud upload, copy to clipboard, search for similar screenshot, entire page screenshot, and so on.
In addition to such features, some extensions/plugins provide photo editing options such as highlighting, resizing and cropping, annotations, the option to blur sensitive information, and exporting to PNG or JPG format.
How to Take screenshots on an ASUS Vivobook Laptop
By pressing and holding down the [Ctrl] + [PrtScr] keys, the Vivobook can take screenshots. Typically, it will take a screenshot of the screen, which can then be pasted into any image editing software, such as Paint.
We take these quirks and features of a general screenshot option for granted every day. What could be done quickly with a couple of keyboard buttons would take a long time for users if they took a screenshot with a plugin. A plugin, on the other hand, would be better suited for those looking to edit the screenshot.
