For a pc using Windows 7 ... Would someone please tell me how to save a screenshot? After I press the Print Screen button what do I do? How do I assign a name and folder and then Save it? Thanks.

Works the same in Win7 and Win8
Once you have the screenshot then you need to open.
Then click and hold ctrl and click the V button in the white box in paint. Your screenshot will now appear.
Then go to the top left of the paint window and click File and then Save As.
Normally I save everything as JPEG format and then I have a folder just for screenshots and instructions pictures I use and need to save in one place.

Thanks. The Paint you mention ... is it part of the Windows7 OS or do I have to obtain/import it? Can I download from the web? If part of Windows7 how do i get to it?

If you go to the Start button or ORB
Then to All Programs and then to Accessories
In there you will find Paint.
