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.
