How to get a screenshot on my laptop?

How to get a screenshot on my laptop? I have a dell Inspiron and I need a screenshot for a project I’m doing…please tell me how?

Hi there

Look for a print screen /system request button on your keyboard. Normally it’s labelled PrtSc/SysRq. Press it, then paste into your project (Ctrl+V)

On some laptops you may need to press Fn + Prt Scrn.

Thank you for your answer. I had the same problem and couldn’t do a screenshot on my laptop. I needed to press the keys Fn and Print, and not just Print. 🙂
