How to make a screen capture in Windows

This should work in any version of Windows. There's no need to download any special screen capturing/clipping/grabbing software. I wish I'd figured this out before!
  1. Navigate to the page/screen you wish to capture.
  2. Press the Prnt Scrn (Print Screen) button on the top right of your keyboard. This will capture the whole area of your screen and place it on the clipboard.
  3. Open a graphics program such as Paint.
  4. Paste the Print Screen image from your clipboard by pressing Ctrl + V.
  5. Crop the image as desired and save.
