    Screen savers


    In Windows 7 I could press two buttons to do a screen save and then go into @Paint' and paste it. I could then save it as a file. I can't find 'Paint' in Windows 10, has this program been scrapped and if so how do I save a screen print?

    Hello Stevo, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    Here are some different ways to take a screenshot in Windows 10 that may help.

    To open Paint, click on Start and type paint then press Enter. If you use it a lot instead, right click on it and select Pin to Taskbar, then Paint is one click away.

    As one becomes more familiar with Win10 they'll find some useful things on the right-click of the Start button. Also some of the Accessories items on the Start list of Win7 are now in Start, All apps, the W list and Windows Accessories. Both are good places to go looking around to see what is what, some things a easier to find and some less used a bit more obscure. As for the Tiles part of Start, anything I've ever used Pin to Start for ended up at the bottom of the Tiles list so I just click and move them up to the top, not much different from moving icons around on the Desktop but the Tiles stay where I put them. If the Tiles list gets too full I just right-click those I don't need and make a choice.

    One thing about the Screen Savers, most times pressing any key will turn them off so I use the PrntScrn on my Desktops or on Notebooks use the Fn + Fx to capture to the clipboard. The Fx key will usually have PrntScrn on it in the same color as the Fn key. Or maybe just use an Fx key by itself, depends upon vendor of the Notebooks, I have a couple that do it differently from each other.
