How to capture a screenshot?

I know I'm suppose to just press the "print scr" key and paste it into Photoshop but for some reason it's not working? It usually works no problem but for some strange reason, it's not capturing the screen... Any advice????

    Fast Stone Screen Capture. Works every time and can paste into most any application. Shortcut keys are CTRL+SHIFT+P. It has to be running to use shortcuts. I have it start with windows. You can even use the zoom tool to capture right down to the pixel.

    I have an older version that has some of the good features they took off the newer versions.

    You could try still hitting the Print Screen key, but then instead of going it to Photoshop I'm always able to find the shot on the Clipboard in Microsoft Word.

    Hold down Shift, then press Print Screen.

    When in Photoshop, right click your mouse and select Paste.

    Click on that and your screen should appear.

    If not, try downloading a program called Paint.net, to use instead of Photoshop, its free and very user friendly.

    I usually paste it into Paint or a WordPad document. If you trying to capture an image off a video off MediaPlayer, and it comes out black then sometimes it just does that, annoys me too.
