How to printscreen?

Ever need to print something on your computer desktop or in a application that just doesn't have a "Print" option? Printscreen was put into windows for the last decade but very few people I know are aware of it and/or know how to use it.

To do this, follow this procedure:
1. Maximize the window you'd like to capture.
2. To copy/capture the current window, hold down ALT + Print Scrn at the same time. To capture the entire screen, just press Print Scrn.
3. Open a new document in MS Word, MS Photo Editor, or Adobe PhotoShop.
4. Paste the screen shot by holding down CTRL and V at the same time.
5. Print the document when you're finished pasting screen shots.

 I simply used MS Paint and saved the file. VOILA all done. check the images and the quality are actually pretty descent. If you found this useful please click follow. Also if you need anyother tutorials just ask and I will be glad to make one for your specific problems.

Google Chrome -incognito mode!

When browsing the web on a public computer incognito mode is a must. It doesn't store cookies on your computer or keep browsing history either, which makes it a must for any avid porn viewer too. Check the photos and you will see how to make it so chome is always incognito so you don't need to change it everytime. Just right click your Chrome icon and edit the target directory like the pic below.
If you just want to run it incognito some of the time you can just click the little wrench in the upper-right hand side of the browser and a drop down menu will appear with the option of "new incognito window (ctrl+shift+n)."
