Windows 7: Unable to use the "prt scr" button?

Unable to use the "prt scr" button?

Heyoo,

So I'm not sure why, but I can't use the "prt scr" button to make a screenshot for some reason. I'm not sure if i'm getting some form of lock from other settings, or it's because I'm not doing it right. What I want to screenshot is this house I made in Minecraft, and I want to show it to a few friends and to the Minecraft Forum for some thoughts, but even with the Snipping Too it doesn't work because once the Too opens the Minecraft Window opened will automatically pause itself and then I can't capture the screen of the game.

So, what should I do to fix this? I don't think it's the keyboard that's at fault because it was working a lot before.

Regards,
~CN-

That's nice, but is there a way of me just capturing screens without having to use programs like before?

You need to use an image-editing program. See the following link;

Take a screen capture (print your screen)
