Print Screen (Prnt Scrn) Key Not Working

  • My prnt scrn key has recently stopped working ... when I hit it, my cursor flashes as if it were taking a screen capture, but when I try to paste my "capture" into an image, there is no image to be pasted ... this is only a recent phenomenon as the key used to work before ... and it isn't "stuck" it just seems to have stopped functioning...
  • kmccormi,

    Thank you for using the Dell Community Forum.

    Please look at the troubleshooting steps posted as item #4 in the Keyboard / Pointing Devices FAQ.

  • Wait a minute - was there an answer to this post?  I am having the same problem, using a D/Dock Expansion station and an ordinary run-of-the-mill keyboard...you can press the print screen button all you want but it captures nothing.
     
    Thanks in advance for help!!!
