UPDATE!!! DO THIS FIRST!!!

Microsoft recently made a change in Windows 10 that hijacks your printscreen key on your keyboard because they want you to use OneDrive... So you probably need to hijack it back... Yes, this is stupid, but just do it, lol...

Open "This PC"... There are several ways to get there, the easy way is to just type "this pc" in the search box in your task bar and opening the "This PC" app...

Right-click on "OneDrive" and open "Settings"...

In the Settings window, click on the Backup tab at the top, and check the box beside "Automatically save screenshots I capture to OneDrive", and then hit the OK button at the bottom...

NOW go back to This PC, right-click on OneDrive again, hit the Backup tab again, and UNCHECK the box beside "Automatically save screenshots I capture to OneDrive", and then hit the OK button at the bottom again...
(yes, you just set it to yes, and then went back and set it to no... told you it's stupid, but that's the way to get Windows 10 to give you back your printscreen button...)

Now on to the good stuff...

Screencapping Made Easy

So yeh... everyone should be able to easily screencap, and snap admins are required to be able to... Windows 10 has the snipping tool built in, but I'm not a fan of it... This is the method I use, the one I prefer to use, and the one I've been using for over a decade...

Yes, it requires the installation of an additional program, but it's small and free...

Get the program

We are going to use the free version of Gadwin PrinstScreen... Get it from here... Download it, save it, run the installer, whatever... Just say "yes" or "accept" on all the prompts, and at the end check the box to run the program...

Change the Settings

You're probably gonna now see a circle popup... Click the gear button on the left... If you don't see the circle, left-click on the ^ in the Windows task bar at the bottom right by the clock, and right-click on the Gadwin icon, then open "Options"... If the Gadwin icon isn't there, you didn't do the stuff I said to do... Restart your PC and try again...

Look carefully at these images, and change your settings to EXACTLY the same, including swapping the image format to .jpg (except for the destination, just accept it as what it is, because I doubt I have a "mark" folder on your computer...)




Once you have all those setting to exactly the way I've got mine, close the settings window... Now you can just hit the "PrtScr" button on your keyboard to capture your entire screen, or hit CTRL+PrtScr to let you draw a rectangle for the capture area, and then hit ENTER to save that image to your destination folder...

What do I do now?

Alright, so that saves the image automatically ON YOUR PC... but if you need other people to see it (including admins), you need to upload it to an image host on the net, and give the other people the link to it... For our purposes, and in MY opinion, Discord works great... If you want to share images online with others and NOT with admins, you just go find your own image host...

So, using Discord as an image host... Ya got 2 options (sorta)...
1) Hit the + to the left of the text entry box where you type at the bottom, then navigate to the screen cap folder you selected in your settings... Choose the image you want to upload and hit OK...
2) Because we (should have) selected the "copy to clipboard" option in Gadwin settings, you can simply right-click in the text entry box at the bottom of Discord, and "paste"... This only works for the last image you capped, and if you haven't hit "copy" anywhere else (including the list manager)...

But remember, if it is admin business, DO NOT share it with non-admins!!!
