Screenshot utilities for Windows

I know this might sound like a stupid question. But in what ways can I take a screenshot? If I press prt SC nothing happens. I have an Asus 1201n with Windows 7 32-bit.

The image is saved on your clipboard. Open an application like Paint and Paste the picture.

So I don't get a place to save it like on a Mac or Linux? – Alvar Jan 16 '12 at 21:56
No, but if you want more functionality you can use the Snipping Tool. Search for it in the start menu. – ZippyV Jan 16 '12 at 21:58
what a stupid print screen function.... thanks! :) (7 mins left until I can accept your answer.) – Alvar Jan 16 '12 at 22:00
There's nothing stupid about it, it's just a different approach. It probably seems unfavorable for some people, but I for one never take a screencap without cropping or annotating it (to the extent that I have special software installed for it, but in a vacuum I'd rather have it go to the clipboard than get saved in a file somewhere and I have to go find it...) – Shinrai Jan 16 '12 at 22:10
@shinrai well when I take a screenshot then I'm in a hurry, so I don't have time to open a editor and save it. And most of the time I take 3 screenshots in a short period of time, in linux on mac that's fine but in windows 7 it just doesn't work... – Alvar Jan 16 '12 at 22:21

Use prt sc : it copy the full screen shot or use alt + prt sc : it shot the current working window

and paste it paint or any apps
