Screenshot method in Windows 11 with the PrtScn button

There is a button called PrtScn on your laptop keyboard. By pressing this button, a menu will open for you, through which you can choose to record the whole page or only a part of it. By default, this tool works in such a way that you have to select a part of the screen after pressing the PrtScn button, but in general, you can take a screenshot of the entire screen by changing the option at the top of the screen.

The Snipping Tool has four different modes:

  1. The first mode from the left allows you to select a part of the display as square or rectangular
  2. The second mode allows you to select a part of the display without any restrictions. The third mode takes a screenshot of the entire page you want (if several pages are open) and the fourth mode records a screenshot of the entire page.
Keep in mind that pressing PrtScn may not open the said menu for you, in which case you should press Fn + PrtScn simultaneously.

Note that if Win + PrtScn two buttons do not work for you, you should press Win + Fn + PrtScn.
