Screenshotting...?

I have an HP Pavilion AMD Turion ( Entertainment laptop ).
There's a button on the keyboard that says insert with prt sc on the bottom in a little white box. Everytime I push this, it doesn't print the screen though? I tried shift + pushing it, alt + pushing it, ctrl + pushing it, nothing happens! If someone knows how to solve this, it would be nice.

However, if you don't I'm wondering if you know a good application for taking screenshots? I tried Screenshot Captor but there is a lot of lag when starting it up. Oh and I'd prefer if it were free. I tried Gadwin too, but 'UNREGISTERED VERSION' appears across the screenshot.

I use Ctrl + Print Screen for everything or Alt + Print Screen for just the current selected window. Then I just paste them into a Word document or an email.

I tried doing that. :/
It doesn't copy the screen so I CAN'T paste it in paint or anything.
Thanks for your reply, though.

You can try also Screen VidShot. There is a free trial version without time limit.

WinSnap is another good one. Version 1 is free...version 2 is not.

Thank you so much!!
I'm using Winsnap, but I'm sure that Screen Vidshot is good, too!

This is so lovely. I can finally take screenshots again without that horrid lag! :whistling:
