    Are you trying to make it print the screen or copy whats on the screen so you can paste it into Paint?

    Sounds like your keyboard is set to another country's.

    Go to your control panel and change it to your one, just in case I'm right.

    As SingaBoiy stated, it does not print directly to a printer. The button only takes a snapshot of the entire screen image. After hitting the button, open paint (or any prog that supports images) and select the paste command. If you hold down the alt button while hitting the Printscreen button, it will take a picture of only the active window.

    Does the keyboard have and "F lock"? Try pressing that.

    It could help if you would tell us what model keyboard it is.

    If you got a proper geordie keyboard, you could just press the "copy me shit" button.

    I reckon you've got one of them mackums' ones.

    That's why I said "F Lock".

    The "N" is Numlock.



    What was the model again?
