    There is an PrtScn (print screen) key on your Windows keyboard. It copies an image of your screen onto the "clipboard," ready to paste into any graphics program. I'll show you the steps how to use it along with Windows' standard image editor, Microsoft Paint, to save an image of your screen.Just go through:-

    1. Press the Print Screen key on your keyboard. It may be labeled [PrtScn].

    2. Open an image editing program, such as Microsoft Paint.

    3. Go to the Edit menu and choose Paste.

    4. If prompted to enlarge the image, choose Yes.

    5. Go to the File Menu and choose Save As.

    6. Navigate to the folder where you want to save the image.

    7. Type a file name for the image.

    8. Select a file type.

    9. Click the Save button.

    Hold the Alt key down while pressing Print Screen to capture only the active window.

    Generally the GIF format works best when saving screen shots of application windows. The JPEG format usually makes screen shots (especially those with text) blurry, blotchy and discolored.

    Capture Your Screen It's a fairly straightforward, simple process. All it takes are a few keystrokes and an imaging program and you're all set. So let's take a look at the keystrokes.

    First Essentially what you are doing is a print screen, so to capture your entire desktop, press the PRNT SCRN key on your keyboard. Or, if you only want to capture the active window, press ALT + PRNT SCRN.

    Next, you need to paste the image into an imaging program. You can use a program such as Paint, which is included with Windows. One of the programs I sometimes use is Paint Shop Pro. Simply paste the image into the program (hint: CTRL+V is the quick way of doing it), and save the new image. And you're done.

    Or else there is a software made for this process you can try that also.its...

    Quick Screen Capture (v3.0)
    You can take and print screenshot from your screen and add some annotation on it? !Quick Screen Capture is such a powerful screen capture and image editing utility. It allows you to take screenshots from any part of your screen in more than 10 ways, and save images in BMP/JPG/GIF formats. Supports hotkey, auto-saving, clipboard. You can edit the screenshot by drawing shapes, arrows, text, filling color, cropping, resizing and so on. It is easy to use and user friendly!

    To capture the entire desktop:-

    Press Command-Shift-3.
    The screen shot will be automatically saved as a file on your desktop.

    To copy the entire desktop:-
    Press Command-Control-Shift-3. The screen shot will be placed on your clipboard for you to paste into another program.

    To capture a portion of the desktop:-
    Press Command-Shift-4. A cross-hair cursor will appear and you can click and drag to select the area you wish to capture. When you release the mouse button, the screen shot will be automatically saved as a PNG file on your desktop. (The file is saved as PDF in Mac OS 10.3 and earlier.)

    To capture a specific application window:-
    Press Command-Shift-4, then press the Spacebar. The cursor will change to a camera, and you can move it around the screen. As you move the cursor over an application window, the window will be highlighted. The entire window does not need to be visible for you to capture it. When you have the cursor over a window you want to capture, just click the mouse button and the screen shot will be saved as a PNG file on your desktop. (The file is saved as PDF in Mac OS 10.3 and earlier.)
