2. The screen will briefly dim to indicate that a screenshot has been taken and saved to your computer.

3. Open the Pictures folder on your computer, and then open the Screenshots folder.

Method 3: Using the Snipping Tool

If you want more control over your screenshots, you can use the Snipping Tool. This tool allows you to capture a specific portion of the screen. Here's how to use it:

1. Open the Snipping Tool application. You can find it by searching for it in the Windows search bar.

2. Click on the New button to start a new snip.

3. Click and drag your cursor to select the portion of the screen that you want to capture.
