Default Print Screen Button

Using Prt Sc shares a button with Home. I want to be able to print what's on
the screen, but clicking it just sends me back to top of page.

Default Print Screen Button

Print Screen sends the screen to the clipboard - not the printer. Paste into
a document and print that.

Download the free IrfanView graphics utility. Then Use Prt Scr to capture
the whole screen or Alt + Prt Scr to capture the active window or dialog,
then launch IrfanView and use Ctrl+V to paste in the capture screen shot.
Edit as required and save as a jpg or one of the other 100 odd formats
supported by IrfanView.

Print Screen takes a screen shot; you can then paste the screen shot into Paint
(or another graphic editor).

Note that if you want to place the active window on the clipboard, press Alt +
Print Screen.

Default Print Screen Button

It sounds like you're using a laptop. There is probably a Fn button that you
have to press in order to activate the secondary function of the
Home/PrintScreen key. Sometimes these secondary functions will be printed in
a different color (green, for example), so you look for a button that says
Fn in green. On my HP laptop, the secondary function has a box around it,
and the boxed Fn key is between the left Alt key and the Windows key.
