In this video, we learn how to take a screen shot without using special tools. First, pull up the page you want to take a screen shot of. Once you have that page up, press the "Alt" and "Prnt Scrn" buttons on your computer keyboard. After you have done this, open up the "Paint" program on your computer and find the toolbar at the top.
