Does anyone know what keys to use to perform a screen capture on a laptop keyboard? My laptop keyboard doesn't have the "print screen" key. TIA

On most of my laptops I've had the PrintScr key is located between F12 and Pause/Break, on some you might have to hold down the FN-key while pressing PrintScr.

If you can't find it plug in a regular keyboard and press PrintScr :)

It may be hiding, but it's probably there. If not, does your laptop have a keyboard mapping utility. You may be able to remap the right alt button, for instance.

What make/model of laptop is it?

Hello everyone and thanks for the input!

Kaled,

It's a Dell Inspirion 1150. I just bought it last year.

I have an Inspiron 5150 and Print Screen is on the "Insert" button, next to the right hand Ctrl key.

I have to hold down the Fn key to use it (blue lettering).

I have a small program called "Screen Thief" which allows you to make any selection of keys to copy the screen.

Just google "Screen Thief" to find it.
