    It does the trick, it just at first appears not to. You need to open up a program that you can paste images into. Paint or Irfanview work best for simple screenshots. Then just go to edit -> paste. It should just appear.
    tip - use alt+prt scr to capture the active window. prt scr captures everything on display (with a few exceptions in special cases)

    If you want to print by just pushing "print Screen", there are quite a few free downloads that allow you to do that. Just go to a site like CNet, put "print screen" in the search area and tell it to look in downloads.
