How to Screenshot on an Acer Computer

Acer desktop and laptop computers support the print screen function that many other computers do. When the print screen procedure is performed, an image of a computer screen is created. This is great for people who want to show family and friends what a certain screen looks like or for use in lectures or tutorials about how to use a computer.
