How do I make a screen shot?
On your keyboard, there is a key titled “Print Screen.” Press that key while the message is on your screen. Now open a Word doc. Right click on your mouse to get a pop up menu and choose “Paste.” This will paste the screen shot into Word. Save the document. Email it to YCL or your IT tech.
