    Press print screen

    Open Paint

    CTRL + V to paste

    delete anything u want to not show off by squaring tearing it off

    save the chunk you want by using CTRL + C and highlighting it with a square box

    Close paint

    Open paint

    CTRL + V

    Save as Jpeg to desktop

    have fun!

    Download and install this nifty little utility It's TPU's very own screenshot utility and quite easy to use.

    Good luck!

    Also, to add if you push ALT+ Prt Scr, it will screenshot only the active "window" .
