    Do you currently have a Microsoft Paint program on your Windows 7 platform? It's fairly simple once you do a couple of them. Paint is used to process/modify/store your pics. I say, modify, that just means your are going to be reducing the size of the pics to make them compatible with this site and others when sharing your pics with others!

    Once I know you have paint or similiar, I can then give you the basics steps.

    Oh and when you say Amazingly still running Windows 7, I too am running Windows 7 and will be to the day I have to upgrade. Works fine for me!

    There is a little freeware program called Irfanview, that will do everything that Paint does, only better.

    My computer cannot live without it.

    I think (it's been a while) that you press CTRL-V to get a screenshot, which goes under your user folder.

    press <v> for screenshot.
    (you can assign a different key of course.)

    or use 'Snapper'
    small program to take screenshots. ​(by Michiel Overtoom).

    You can also hold down your Windows key and then press "Print".

    The screenshots will then be in \Pictures\Screenshots

    Hi Jörgen,
    <Printscreen key>
    or on some keyboerds:
    <Windows key> + <Printscreen key>

    saves the screenshot only to clipboard. (I think... but pretty sure really.)

    To save it you would then also have to paste it in a program like paint for example. (Into a blank image of the correct size.)
    Not convenient while flying.

    I'm not near a PC, so cant check it now, sorry.

    On my Windows 10 the screenshots goes to \Pictures\Screenshots by default, Windows 7 should be the same, but since I have never run 7, only 8, 8.1 and 10 I cannot be sure.

    And if you are a MS Paint user, you should try out Irfanview. IMNSHO Irfanview runs rings around Paint, and at least the price is right.
