    Microsoft Keyboard "PrtScn SysRq insert" key

    I'm trying to print downloaded photos that is on the screen. Not individual
    ones but what is on the monitor screen. Each picture has a number below it to
    identify the picture.

    1. I hit "PrintScn Sys Rq" key once. Open Inranview software. Click on
    Edit, but there was no paste option. The infranview screen says I have no
    file.

    2. So the problem is getting my screen photo on the clipboard. What am i
    doing wrong?

    I usually clip the image into MSPAINT, but I just opened IrfanView, if I
    press PRTSCN, then click on the Edit drop down menu there's a Paste option,
    click on that, and the image appears in IrfanView.

    Can also press Alt+PrntScr to copy just the top window to the clipboard.

    If it's not working could be something wrong, but with what I have no idea.

    The PRTSCN key copies the image to the Clipboard. I think the result is in
    BMP format. Anyway, open Paint (Start/All Programs/Accessories/Paint) and
    see if your paste option exists.

    If this is a Microsoft keyboard with a Fn-key lock, you may need to turn the
    Fn-lock off (or on) to get a PrtSc keystroke generated.
