Hi,
  I used to have Screenshot software working on my XP computer.
  I just try to install it on my NEW Windows 7 64bit PC, but it fails due to incompatibility.
  The software is made by Parsons Technology, but apparently they no longer exist in the market.
  Is there a software that I can either download for FREE or PAID where I can  press one key on the keyboard to have everything on the monitor to print immediately?

Thanks.

Use the Snipping tool included with Windows7.  Start > All Programs > Accessories > Snipping Tool.

Like people saying Snipping tool does a great job for most people.

But I use Snagit, its the best program I have found for this.

Thanks for the suggestions.
All of them have everything that I am looking for except ONE THING:

With Screenshot by Parsons Technology, I Just press [Print] key on the keyboard in order to print what is on the screen period. There is no need to capture/save or go to File/Print.

With snagit you can automatically send straight to a printer if you wish.

You can also setup what every hotkey you want to invoke the software, i use ctrl+alt+z as its a nice 3 finger combo.

so, no need to select the area to print or save the image in JPG format and print?
Just one button on the keyboard and it will print what is on the screen?

You can set it up to do a partial capture or a fullscreen capture, whichever way you would prefer it to work.

A free tool that offers this (SnagIt is not free) is GadWin Print Screen (there is a paid version but the free version should do the trick as well).

Thanks you for suggesting GadWin Print Screen. It is truly simply. Just press [Print Scrn] key on the keyboard and click on [Continue Output ]. Thanks it!
I also appreciate all other suggestions. They were functional, but requires too many extra steps to print the entire image of the screen.
