How to Screenshot on HP Envy

This guide will show you the best keyboard shortcuts and in-built Windows 10 features for taking screenshots on HP Envy laptops.

How Do You Take a Screenshot on a Windows 10 HP Envy Laptop?

Here are a few methods for taking a screenshot of a complete app or screen on an HP Envy laptop.

First approach: Press the Print Screen button.

On Windows keyboards, the Print Screen key is a physical key that is used to capture screenshots. The Print Screen key on HP laptops and computers is designated by Prn Scr. Older models of Windows keyboards may utilise the complete phrase, Print Screen, while other Windows keyboards may use PrtScn.

 

The Print Screen key can be used with a few keyboard shortcuts. This is what they do.

  • Prn Scr: By alone pressing the Print Screen key will capture an image of your whole screen and copy it to your clipboard in Windows.
  • Prn Scr + Alt: Saves a screenshot of the active app to the clipboard while taking a screenshot of the app.
  • Prn Scr + Windows: This method captures a PNG image of the entire display.
  • Prn Scr + Windows + Alt: This keyboard shortcut captures a snapshot of just the active app and saves it as a PNG file.

# 2: Utilize the Windows Snipping Tool

The built-in Snipping tool for the Windows operating system can be accessed by pressing Windows + Shift + S. When engaged, a small menu bar with four screenshot options should appear at the top of the screen.

  • Select this option to use a rectangular selection tool to pick a section of your screen to screenshot.
  • Freeform Snip: This allows you to choose any shape for your screenshot.
  • Windows Snip: Using this feature, you can screenshot an active app or browser window.
  • Full-screen Snip: This option captures a screenshot of the entire screen of your HP Envy.

The Snipping tool will save your screenshot to the clipboard where it will remain until more text or picture information is copied before it can be pasted into another app.

 

Additionally, the system will alert you. The Windows Snip & Sketch app will launch when you click on this notification. If you choose, you can ignore this notification.

 

# 3: Utilize Snip & Sketch 

 

Windows devices come pre-installed with the free programme Snip & Sketch. A screenshot of the entire screen will be taken when it is opened; it can then be cropped, annotated, and saved.

 

Click Windows Ink Workspace from the taskbar and choose Fullscreen snip to launch Snip & Sketch.

 

Your full-screen screenshot will appear.

 

# 4 Use a screenshot app

 

You have the option of using a specific screenshot programme in addition to the HP Envy alternatives mentioned above. The Xbox Game Bar utility, which comes pre-installed with Windows, is one such simple-to-use application. Users with more experience might wish to try OBS Studio.

 

You can record video using one of these programmes while using your HP Envy PC.
