Take a screenshot with Windows 10 Gateway computer. Although depending on the model. You can either use the FN key +Print Screen button. Or CTRL + Print Screen. Both of these methods will take a screenshot of your current computer screen and then saves the screenshot to the clipboard.

If you prefer to save the screenshot to a folder press the Windows Key + PrtScn button to take a screenshot of your current screen and this saves the screenshot to the screenshot folder.

If you have a newer Gateway laptop with the Windows 11 operating system. You can take a screenshot by pressing the FN key + Print Screen Key. This will take a screenshot of your current screen and then you can then paste the screenshot into an app of your choice.

If you prefer to save the screenshot to a folder, press the Windows Key + PrtScn buttons to take a screenshot of your current screen and save it to a folder so you can use the image later.

Take Screenshot of the Active Window

If your Gateway laptop is connected to a monitor and you want to take a full-screen screenshot of only one display. For Windows 11 laptops, select the display and then press FN + ALT + PRTsc buttons. For Windows 10 laptops, press the ALT + PRTsc buttons. (Only the active screen will be captured).

If you want to instantly use the screenshot, open up a graphics editor. Such as Windows Paint, Gimp or Microsoft word. Then press Ctrl + V to paste the screenshot into the application. You can then resize or crop the screenshot and save your screenshot to the format of your choosing. (JPEG or PNG)


Tip #2: Take a Screenshot Using the Snipping Tool

All Windows-based laptops, including Gateway computers have built-in tools like the snipping tool. With the snipping tool, you can easily learn how to screenshot on a Fujitsu laptop, Gateway laptop or any other laptop running the Windows operating system.

With the snipping tool, you can take a screenshot of your entire screen. Or, if you prefer, you can capture just part of the screen. This all depends on what you need the image for.

You can then save your screenshots in any format or location of your choosing. Moreover, the snipping tool allows for more control over how you can capture different parts of your screen. The snipping tool also has features such as selecting, cropping, annotating and options for sharing your captures online.

For Windows 10 and Windows 11 Gateway laptop users, first press the start menu or the Windows key and start typing Snipping Tool in the search bar. Then select the snipping tool from the menu. Alternatively, you can press Windows Key + Shift + S to open the snip tool.

But you can also take great looking screenshots with the built-in Xbox Game Bar. This tool is great for capturing your screenshots and screen recording your gameplay footage using your Gateway laptop.

The Xbox Game Bar would be the best way to screenshot for gamers who want to capture their latest gameplays and share their conquests on Twitter or any other social networks. However, being able to use this tool is dependent on the laptop model you have.
