In windows 10, you can do windows key+ Printscreen. The system will take a screenshot and immediately save it to your hard disk in PNG format.

You can find the finished file at: “This PC” → “Pictures” → “Screenshots“.

If you simply want a screenshot without saving, you just want to paste it in a word file, then simply:

Press the PrtSc key. Windows will take a screenshot, but will not show it: the system will not save the image to the hard disk, but only copy it to the clipboard.

To see the screenshot, start Paint and paste the image into the program window using the Ctrl + V keys. If necessary, change the image using the editor.

To take a screenshot in macOS it’s “shift+command+3” for a whole screenshot or “shift+command+4” to capture a portion of the screen.If you do “shift+command+4+Space bar,” this enables 

a window or menu to be captured. All screenshots are saved on the desktop.

This may vary between different distros in a Linux operating system, but usually most support the following:
