How To Print Screen on Logitech Keyboard

Logitech Keyboard

The print screen key on the keyboard takes a screenshot of the entire computer screen. Most keyboards come with a dedicated print screen key, usually on the right side.

However, many Logitech keyboard users often complain about a missing print screen key. While some Logitech keyboards offer a key for it, most don’t.

Quick Answer

The quickest way to take a screenshot on a Logitech keyboard is by pressing the Windows + PrtScn button on the keyboard. If you can’t find a print screen key on your keyboard, try using the on-screen keyboard instead. We are going to talk more about this in detail below.

This article will discuss how to print screen on a Logitech keyboard, either through the dedicated key or the on-screen keyboard.

What Is the Print Screen Key Used For? 

There can be times when you’re using your PC, and you need to take a screenshot of something. It can be anything from an important email to an in-game screenshot.

While most manufacturers create keyboards with a dedicated print screen key, Logitech keyboards often lack this feature. Most Logitech keyboard users are always complaining about issues with taking a screenshot.

How To Print Screen on Logitech Keyboard Using Dedicated Key

If your Logitech keyboard has a print screen key, you can take a screenshot by following the below steps.

  1. Connect the Logitech keyboard to your PC or laptop. If it’s a wireless keyboard, make sure it’s connected via Bluetooth.
  2. Press Windows + PrtScn on your keyboard. Some Logitech keyboards have a Start key instead of a Windows key.
  3. Open any image editor, like MS Paint, and paste the screenshot by pressing Ctrl + V.
  4. Click “Save“.

The program will now save your screenshot to the default location. You can also keep it in a different place by clicking on “Save As“. This also lets you choose a new file name for the screenshot.

Important

Some Logitech keyboards don’t have a PrtSc key. Instead, they have a key with a camera icon on it.

For example, the Logitech MX wireless keyboard, one of the best keyboards for productivity, has a key with a camera icon above the number pad. This key serves the same purpose as the PrtScn key.

Therefore, if you cannot find a dedicated print screen key on your keyboard, try looking for this camera icon instead.

How To Print Screen on Logitech Keyboard Using On-Screen Keyboard 

If you purchased a Logitech keyboard without a print screen key, don’t panic. This doesn’t mean that you can not take a screenshot using your keyboard.

In this case, you need to rely on the on-screen keyboard. Many people don’t know that Windows 10 lets you pop up a digital keyboard on your screen, and you can do it by following the steps mentioned below.

  1. Press the Windows or Start key on your Logitech keyboard.
  2. Type “on-screen keyboard“, then open the utility in the search bar.
  3. Click on the PrtScn key on the digital keyboard.
  4. Open MS Paint
  5. Press Ctrl + V on your keyboard, and your screenshot will appear in front of you. 

Conclusion

Some Logitech keyboards come with a dedicated PrtScn key, making the screenshot process easier. However, others don’t have this key, and you need to rely on the on-screen keyboard. Some third-party software lets you take a screenshot quickly without using the print screen key as they have their hotkeys. But you will be fine with using the on-screen keyboard in most cases.
