Quoting 02nana07:

 THANK YOU

Quoting Barabell:

 If you click the keyboard combination of the Windows Key + Print Screen, Windows 8 will capture the current screenshot and save it automatically in the Pictures Library. If you are on a tablet the combination is the Windows Key + Volume Down.

I know what you mean it comes second nature to them they started at such a young age and don't understand we didn't grow up with computers

My first time I googled it and for some reason it seemed hard and complicated to follow the instructions LOL.I scare myself with the computer ...dam yung'uns know'n it all...... my teens give each other "a look " and ever so subtly roll their eyes and assumed a pained patient expression when I ask for help...next time I will ask cm. : D

 I still hate windows 8 but I am the only one in the house with it because they got me a new laptop for Christmas.

Quoting Barabell:

...I should add that he's pretty jealous of my Windows 8 phone and wants one now. So I might eventually convert him to PCs over time...

Quoting MrsBLB:

 I know what you mean but since my guys got it for me I use it.

Can't help. I HATE my Windows 8 laptop so much that I use my moms laptop.
