Hello,

I would love to be able to 'print screen or copy' a screen shot from a software program into
my PowerPoint presentation. Basically coping the screen shot into my PowerPoint presentation.

I have a laptop (Thinkpad t410) with a 'PrtSc' button in the top right in white. I am not sure if this is how I would copy my screen shot so I can paste it into my powerpoint deck?

Thanks!
Chris

If you use Ctrl-C to copy, it will copy everything on the screen. If you use Alt-C to copy it will copy only the active window. You can then use Paint or any photo editor program to save the picture/screenshot. Then insert the picture in PowerPoint and you can use the "Picture Tools" to do your editing in PowerPoint itself.

Sorry for incorrect procedure, you will hold down Ctrl-PrintScreen or Alt-PrintScreen to copy the screen shot and then Ctrl-V to paste it to a blank page in a photo editor.
