How to take a print screen using a French Keyboard


How do I print screen on lenovo T420? My system is currently equipped with a french keyboard. I am unable to locate the Print Screen key.



Genrally the Print Screen Key should be located next to the Power Button. It should be labelled as "PrtSc". However when using a french keyboard the Print Screen key should be labeled as "ImpEc".


As an alternative the "Snipping tool" is a niffty tool to be used for "Print Screen". This is a standard software that come bundled with the Windows7 operating system. You can find this by going to 


  • START > ALL PROGRAMS > ACCESSORIES > SINPPING TOOL (Please see illustration below)
