Screen Copy

Have a Toshiba Satellite Pro C870-1E2 Laptop running Windows 7 Pro but the keyboard has no "Screen Copy"button.Is there any alternative way to take a copy of what is on the screen?.

There's no PrtScn button? You could always use the Snipping Tool built into Windows 7.

Windows 7 ultimate 64 bit

Hi there, is this your particular laptop keyboard?
If so the 'print screen button' is the secondary function of the 'END' button located above the / on the numpad, usually activated by pressing FN + the key in question.

As for an alternative it depends on what you want to get an 'image' of. you could print a website to the 'Microsoft xps document writer' which will create a picture file of the website you are on as if you had printed it, or as the person above mentioned you could use the snippet tool

You can also try the following:
Click on Start > All Programs > Accessories > Ease of Access > On Screen keyboard > Prt Screen.
^ this works if all else fails
