So, how to screenshot on Asus Zenbook?
There are a few ways to screenshot on an ASUS Zenbook. So, I’m going to show you all the methods so you can learn and then try to find one that’s best for you.
Method 1: Print Screen Button:
The first way is to use the print screen button. This method is the easiest way to take a screenshot, and it doesn’t require any additional software. To do this, press the print screen button on your keyboard, and the screenshot will be saved. You can then paste it into a document or email.
Method 2: Snipping Tool:
The second way is to use the snipping tool. And this tool lets you take screenshots of whatever you want to take. Open the snipping tool by pressing Windows + “snipping tool“. Select the snipping tool from the results and click on it.
Once the snipping tool is open, you can choose to screenshot the entire screen, a specific window, or a selected area. To screenshot the screen, click on the arrow next to “New” and select “Full screen“. Select “Window” from the arrow menu to screenshot a specific window. You can also screenshot a selected area by holding down the left mouse button while dragging around the area.
You’ll see a preview of your screenshot in the snipping tool once you release your mouse button after selecting the area. After you have saved it as a file, you can copy it to the clipboard.
Method 3: Third-Party Software:
In the third case, third-party software can be used. Some popular programs include Jing, Skitch, and Lightshot.
To use a third-party software program, download and install it on your computer. Then open the program and follow the instructions to take a screenshot. Most programs will let you save your screenshots as files or copy them to the clipboard.
So those are three ways to screenshot on an ASUS Zenbook. We recommend trying all three methods so you can find the one that’s best for you.
Asus laptop print screen not working, What to do?
Other few things you can do to try and fix the issue.
First, restart your computer. This often fixes small issues.
Next, check your computer’s settings. Make sure you have enabled the print screen feature. To do this, follow these steps:
- Open the Start menu and type “Ease of Access.” Click on the “Ease of Access Center” option.
- Click on “Make the keyboard easier to use.“
- Scroll down to the “Change how pressed keys work” section and check the “Print Screen” key. Click on “OK.“
If the key is already checked, try pressing it again. Sometimes it can get unchecked if your computer is restarted. If this doesn’t work, you may need to check the manufacturer’s website for updated drivers. If they aren’t up to date on your system, it could cause issues like these.
Last but not least, a keyboard shortcut may be used to capture your entire screen. This is often faster than using the print screen key on the keyboard since all you have to do is open an image editing program and press the “PrtScn” button, which most programs have by default under “Edit.” This will copy an image of what has been displayed on the screen at that moment in time into the clipboard so that you can paste it into any other file or program that you choose.
How to screenshot on an Asus tablet?
- The first step in taking a screenshot is to press both the power and volume buttons simultaneously.
- Another option that should work across most tablets, but not all, is holding down the power button and the home key simultaneously to take a screenshot. Again, you might have to play around with it depending on your specific tablet’s configuration.
- If these two options don’t work for you, there are always third-party apps in Google Play that can let you capture screenshots on an Android tablet or another device quickly and easily. There are plenty of free screenshot apps available and paid versions that have more features if you need them.
- Finally, if you’re using a tablet with latest android OS then there’s actually a built-in screenshot feature that sends files off to the /Pictures/Screenshots folder on your device or SD card. However different android tablets could have different built-in features and settings, so you would have to find out.
