The print screen button is found on all standard keyboards, including Dell laptop keyboards. The print screen button is located on the top right side of the keyboard. On Dell laptops the print screen button shares the button with the Insert function. The insert function is the dominant function, so to make the print screen function work, you must use the function key while using the print screen. The process is a little tricky but once you get use to using the function key, you will be able to use print screen to copy the screen whenever needed.
