How do i take screenshots on a laptop O-o

Updates, Patches, Tech Forum Talk about MS Updates, patches, tech

I thought ive been taking screenshots...but when i went to look for the ones i took they were not there. So i am at a loss...i thought the button was PrintScr but that dose not work. When i tried to change the button in the settings, it wouldn't let me move it. I have a rather new lap top but the keyboard layout is the same. I run Windows 7. thats about it x-x

Think the only way is to press print screen, then open paint, then CTRL+V, then save, then view your ss, then alt+tab back into maple, then get scammed by potential equips, then throw laptop out window.

You are trying to take a screenshot on MS, or taking it out site of the game? Print Screen is the SS function, if you want to take it outside of MS (you could take it in-game too though); however, it doesn't save it. It is on your clipboard, where you need to open up an image editing program like Microsoft Paint and paste it in there in order to get it.

If you want to take a SS using the key that assign to in MS, then it is Scroll Lock. It should, by default, save it in your MapleStory folder.

most likely there is a button that says prnt scrn or prt sc on your top right of your laptop keyboard. Some laptops require that you hold the fn key(function key). This is because that button is used as 2 functions and to use the second function is by holding the fn key and the button.(usually the second function is the same color as the fn key)

On mine it's set as a secondary key on Num Lk. So I have to press FN + Num Lk for it to register as Scr Lk.

Well for me, I have to hold the blue [FN] which lets you press the blue buttons and then press the Num Lk/ key
blue Scroll Lk

Because while you're bossing, you can totally copy, paste, open paint, and save the picture without dying.

OT: Use Fraps, or some other Screenshot program to take SS's. That's what I do, since my SS's don't save either~

Press scroll lock to take in-game screen shots (it's set to this by default and i am pretty sure you can't change the key), and if you just generally want to take a screen shot on other sites and what not, there is a button that says "Prt Sc" press that then open up an editing program and paste it there (if "Prt Sc" is written in blue or another colour hold the "fn" key while you press "Prt Sc".
