How to say what you mean in pictures

One trick a virtual assistant should have in his or her utility belt is the print screen key. Look for the “Print Screen SysRq”, “Prt Scr” or “Prt Sc” key on your keyboard. See it?



What does it do? Well, when you press it, nothing is typed. Nothing opens. Your computer screen stays the same. Strange you think?

Not really.

What it really do is that it captures the image of your screen and copies it to your Windows clipboard. All you have to do is paste it to your image editor or a PowerPoint presentation. To illustrate even further, I made a simple step by step guide for you. Have a look!

Print Screen is a good tool to use to show anyone what you see on your screen. It beats being tangled up in so many words trying to explain what you’re doing or seeing on screen. As they say ‘a picture is worth a thousand words.

For the past 2 months, I’ve been using Print Screen heavily in doing how-to-use guides of tools, programs or websites any virtual person should know about. I will be featuring these how-to-use guides in my future blogs. So keep coming back guys!
