1. Print Screen key
Most well-known and traditional way of playing the Windows computer screen, from the combination of keyboard buttons.
Step 1. Press the "PrtScn" key on the keyboard. Then open the program in which you want to copy the image, such as Paint, Photoshop, GIMP, Word or even an e-mail. To do this, press the "Ctrl" + "V" keys at the same time or right-click and select the "Paste" option;

2. Capture of the program in use
The Microsoft system allows you to capture only the screen of the application in use. This leaves out unnecessary information, such as the toolbar, for example.
Step 1. Press the "Alt" + "PrtScn" keys. Then you have to put the image in some program, just like the procedure done with the "PrtScn" button. In this case, we'll exemplify the collage with the screenplay of Gmail, with shortcut "Ctrl" + "V";

3. Save the image immediately
In this action, by associating the key with the Windows symbol and the Print Screen button, the system will automatically save the image to a folder called "Screenshots", specific to that registry.
Step 1. At the same time, combine the "PrtScn" + button with the Windows symbol. The screen will "blink", that is, it will turn gray for a second in order to record the action. Then to find the image, type "screenshots" in the Windows Search bar and click on the folder option that appears;on the search bar in Windows 10
Step 2. It will also be available in the directory "This Computer> Images> Screenshots". Images are saved as PNG format files.

4. Capture Tool
In addition to the keyboard shortcuts, Windows has a native, easy-to-use program called "Capture Tool". The application brings options like free cutout of the screen, print only of the window of the program in use, among others. The software also allows you to edit and save the image without using an external app.
Step 1. In the Windows search bar, type "Capture Tool" and click on the program icon;Capture "in the Windows 10 Search Box
Step 2. By clicking "Mode" you can choose the region or how the print will be made. In "Free-form Crop", right after the capture, the user can select the portion of the image he wants. Already in "Rectangular Capture", the screenshot will be limited to this format. While in "Window Capture", the program will only register the screen of the program used. Finally, under "Full Screen Crop", the entire computer screen will be copied;
