How to Print Your Pictures Using Microsoft 'Paint'

'Paint' program fired up

Step 1.

First, open Microsoft's 'Paint' program.

You can do this by, left clicking on the Start Button (which is located at the bottom left corner of your computer screen) and then clicking on the 'Paint' icon (if it is present) or by, left clicking on 'All Programs' and selecting 'Paint' from the list that appears.

Step 2.

Next, press the 'Alt' and 'PrtSc' keys together to capture your picture and copy it to the clipboard.

Tip 1.

Pressing the 'Alt' and 'PrtSc' keys together copies the current window contents to the clipboard so remember to ensure that the last 'thing' you clicked on was your drawing page on the website.

Tip 2.

The 'Alt' key is usually located towards the left hand side on the bottom row of your keyboard and the 'PrtSc' key is usually to be found on the top row just to the right of the F1 to F12 keys.
