Although this is very different for the mobile sector, which is controlled by Android OS, only here because I am also a Windows user, so here I provide tips that are quite important in daily activities, especially if you are a blogger, journalist, as well as an article maker or researcher.


Windows tips this time about screenshots.

This screenshot or screenshot is important enough to get information which of course will take a long time to type and if the information is in the form of an image, it will be easier to combine directly into a word document, for example ... so there is no need to save or download the image, but only with screenshots only.

I think this is much more practical, mate...

Another example is when Meeting Zoom, and we are assigned to document the meeting, of course if we can't save images, yes, because it is an active window, so that we master the Screen Capture Shortcut in Windows which is most likely also universal, meaning that it can be used in several versions of windows, like windows 10, windows 11.. that's it.. 


It is hoped that with this I write, it can be a joint note, for me and my friends who happen to stop at RahmanCyber... ups.. this my indonesian site... here you can call us "myshorttips".

As with the first discussion, the results of the screenshot will go to the Clipboard, so you can paste it into certain software, such as Microsoft Word or Microsoft Paint.


3. Shortcut Full screen screenshot directly save to the Screenshot Folder in My Picture Windows


If the two results above are saved to the Clipboard, it means that if you take another screenshot and the results have not been pasted into certain software such as Word or Microsoft Pain, the initial screenshot will immediately be replaced with a newer screenshot, unless you activate the clipboard history in Windows. .

How to take full screen screenshots directly to the Screenshots folder, you just need to press "Win" (Windows Logo) + "Prt Scn"

4. Custom Area Screenshot Shortcut to copy to Clipboard



If you want to select a certain area, you can really do this, but you can't save it directly to the screenshots folder, but to the clipboard, just like the first and second discussion.

To do this, press the keyboard key "Win" (Windows Logo) + "Shift" + "S"

After that, you just need to click and drag the cursor to determine the area you want.

After that, sometimes there will be a notification near the taskbar in the right corner, to open it directly to Microsoft Paint..


So if you click on the notification, then you will be directed to Microsoft Paint.
