If you need to capture an image of your Toshiba laptop's screen, use the Windows screenshot function. Screenshots can allow you to show a friend how to use a specific program: take multiple screenshots of the same program to guide the friend in the right direction. A screenshot of an online map is useful when giving directions to new destinations. Screenshots can also aid in troubleshooting: taking a screenshot of an error on your Toshiba computer can help tech support quickly identify the problem.
