Steps to take a whole screenshot of the screen on the HP laptop

Using Windows+ PrtScr

  3. You don’t have to manually save the screenshot as it gets automatically stored in the ‘Screenshot’ folder of the ‘Pictures’. To access it, click on the Windows key and the ‘E’ button (Win+E) to explore, and on the left pane, you can see the folder of ‘Pictures’ in the Quick Access section. You can locate the folder over there.
