How Do I Make a Screenshot of The Metro Start Screen?

    Question

  • Hello,

    I tried to make a screenshot of the new Metro desktop using the Sniping Tool and it's to no avail. Once I click New to create a screenshot, the Metro desktop disappears immediately switching me to basic desktop.

    How do you make the Metro start screen?

    Thank you.

  • You can use the Print Screen key while in Metro instead of the Snipping tool, then paste the image into a picture editing program to save it.

  • Aha, I've somehow forgotten the good old PrnScr button. Oh, how fast you get used to new tools. Thanks!
