If you think you may need this tool multiple times then no need to search for it again. Instead, you can create a shortcut for it on your computer. So whenever, you need it, you can open it directly.

2- Windows Key+PrtSc Method

This is another quick and smart method to take a screenshot on your computer. Through this method, you just only press Windows Key + PrtSc and the screenshot is done. It will be saved automatically in your screenshots folder.

To navigate the location of the Screenshots folder follow the following path: This PC>Picures>Screenshots. This is the default location. Whatever screenshot you will take through this method, it will automatically get saved in this folder.

3- PrtSc (Print Screen) Method

The third method that I want to tell you to take screenshots is PrtSc (Print Screen) method. It is also a very easy and quick method. In this method just open the page for which you want to take a screenshot, and just press the PrtSc key from your keyboard.

After it, your entire screen will be copied to your clipboard. But to save this file, you need to open another program like Paint or Microsoft word and paste it. After pasting the screenshot, you can save the file.

The above three methods are very easy to operate. But as of now, my favorite method is the Snipping tool method. Because I get so much flexibility in this method. Apart from the above, there are some methods also. You can also use some third-party apps like ShareX, ScreenRec, etc to take a screenshot.
