Taking a screenshot of your desktop is a function of Windows or Mac and not AutoQuotes. We get this question asked quite often and decided to include this information in our knowledge base.
Screenshots in Windows
Press the "Print Screen" button on your keyboard and this will take a snapshot of your screen (whatever is displayed). Then open the "Paint" program that comes with Windows or whatever photo editing program you may prefer and paste the image. Once the image is pasted you can save as a .jpg, .png or whatever format you prefer.
If you have Windows 8 or 10 you can "Save a full-screen screenshot directly to a file" When you press the Windows key + Print Screen key, you will save a full-screen screenshot directly to a file without having to paste it into another program first. The file is saved to the "Screenshots" folder in your "Pictures" library. If the Screenshots folder does not exist, Windows will create one.
•The picture is saved in PNG format.
•Screenshots are automatically labeled "Screenshot", and a number will appear in parentheses for each consecutive screenshot.
