I use an HP laptop, specifically the HP 245 G7, powered by an AMD Ryzen 3 3300U CPU and running Windows 11 version 22H2 build 22621.2283. With this setup, I can effortlessly capture screenshots without any extra software.

If you also use an HP laptop and wonder how to take screenshots, keep reading! I'll show you some simple ways to do it.

How to Take Screenshot on HP Laptop using the PrtSc Button (Snipping Tool)

This is the most common method for all laptops, including HP. Almost every Windows version supports it, from Windows 8 to Windows 11.

On Windows 8 and 10, pressing the PrtSc key would copy the screenshot to your clipboard, and you'd paste it into an app like Paint or Photoshop. However, Windows 11 has made it even easier:

  • Navigate to the screen you want to capture.
  • Press the PrtSc key on your HP laptop keyboard.

  • The screen will dim a bit, and a menu will pop up at the top. From there, select your desired Snipping Mode: Rectangle, Window, Full Screen, or Free Form.
    • Rectangle lets you capture a specific area in a rectangular shape.
    • Window lets you screenshot an entire window without manual selection.
    • Full Screen captures everything displayed on the screen.
    • Free Form allows custom shape selections.

This is the easiest way you can do to take screenshots without using additional applications. Just one press of a key on the keyboard and you are faced with an intuitive screenshot-taking interface, such as being able to take partial, full screen, and window images.

Notes: If the PrtSc shortcut key doesn't work, you can bring up the Snipping Tool application by typing "Snipping Tool" into the search bar on the Start menu.

How to Take Screenshot on HP Laptop Using Xbox Game Bar

If the PrtSc key on your keyboard isn't working or you faced issues with another method, using the Xbox Game Bar is a simple alternative.

Although the Xbox Game Bar is primarily designed to capture gameplay images and videos, you can also use it to screenshot other content. Here's how:

  • Navigate to the screen you want to capture. Press the Windows + G keys together.
  • Click the camera icon at the top left, as indicated.
