How to Do a Screenshot on an HP Mini Laptop


The HP Mini is a "netbook;" a small, inexpensive laptop with low power and long battery life. Netbooks can be difficult to adjust to at first, because of their small keyboards and touchpads. The small keyboard size necessitates that some standard functions such as the Print Screen key are relegated to a sub-commands using the Fn modifier key.

  • Start whatever program or activity you want to take a screenshot of.

  • Hod down the Fn key in the lower-left corner of the keyboard, then press the Insert [Prt Sc] key in the upper-right corner and release both keys.

  • Open your standard image editor. If you do not have an image editor, you can use Windows' built-in Paint. Click the "Start" button, then "All Programs," "Accessories," then "Paint."

  • Create a new document that matches the resolution of your LCD screen. HP Mini computers come in 1024 x 600, 1,024 x 576, and 1,366x768 resolutions - check your user manual if you're unsure. Paint does not have a precise size function, but it will automatically adjust to the screenshot.

  • Press the Ctrl and V keys. Click "File," then "Save as." Choose a destination, file type, and name for your screenshot, then click "Save."
