What is your computer? Windows or Mac?

If it's Windows, then my personal
recommendation is press “PrtScn” to capture your whole desktop.

If
you are using Mac, then the best way is to press Command key (⌘) + Shift + 3 or 4 to do screenshot.

There should be a print screen button on your keyboard at the top right on top your keypad
Press that, then go to paint and paste it.

There are several ways.

Perhaps the easiest of all is to simply hit the little button on your keyboard designed to do exactly that! Yes, the one called Print Screen - bet you always wondered why is was there, eh? You now have a copy of the current screen (usually minus the cursor) in the clipboard (the place where anything you copy goes to before you paste it)

Next you can open your favourite image manipulation program, and chose Edit, Paste, As New Image and there it is. All you have to do now is save it, or edit it a bit.

Or, you could open a word processor and paste it straight there from the clipboard too.

But your favourite image manipulation program will have its own method of capturing a screen, and a much more sophisticated one at that. You will find full instructions in its help files (always a good place to start when you are stuck). It will almost always offer you the choice of capturing the entire screen or the current active window, with or without the cursor in view.

So, try it now!

If its Windows, then my personal
recommendation is press “PrtScn” to capture your whole desktop, or if running an online
app such as Free Screenshot Capture click the camera icon after the operation interface popups. 

Anyway, either the
method is very simple to operate, especially the second one, which has a
powerful function like editor options, or customized screenshot area, etc.

If you're using Mac, then the best way is to
press Command key (⌘) + Shift + 3 or 4 to do
screenshot.

Yeah. But on my laptop (a Dell Inspiron 5150) the "Insert" and "Print Screen" buttons are one in the same..
I know my way around a computer very well and I can't figure out a way around this, without downloading some insane program for $50. ):
