I have recently wanted to take screen shots of UO and have never done it before. I googled how to take a screenshot of my PC computer and followed the how to videos but have not been able to get it working. Can anyone help me? I have no idea what I am doing wrong. It seemed simple. Have the file open while hitting the PrintSc Button. I have also tried holding down the shift key while pressing Print Sc button. Neither seem to work  because I went into my file an it was empty. Anyone have any idea what I am doing wrong? I am using a Windows 7 Professional  PC, 64bit.

    To take PC screenshots:
    1) press the "print screen" key;
    2) open a graphical app (MS Paint is enough);
    3) Paste the memorized screen;
    4) save it as a .jpg, .png, etc.

    If you have windows 10, you can choose onedrive to save screenshots you take with printscreen automatically.

    There’s also the snipping too that comes with windows. Just push the windows key and start typing snipping tool and it should pop up.
