First, you need to locate the Prt Scrn button on your keyboard. Normally it should be End button on the Dell laptop. You will need to Press Fn + End button simultaneously then open a Paint app in the operating system and paste (Ctrl+ V) it and edit the picture if you want.
Hello Samyak Veera.
A simple way is to use the Windows Snipping Tool (type snipping in the Windows search box, or you can find it in the list of Programs under "Accessories").
However the Snipping Tool will not capture the cursor or a context menu, so if you need a shot that contains those items you would be better to use the Fn+Prnt Scrn method explained by Ravi BC.
[If you ever need to post a screen shot into a post here on the Dell Forum, the instructions are here.]
With Windows 8:
Desktop: Hold the Windows key and press PrintScreen or PrtScr. The screen shot will appear in a ScreenShot folder in the Pictures folder.
Laptop: Same way or press the Fn key along with the PrtScr key

Hello. I'm sure Macs are better than PC's in many ways. I have to say, though, that it is pretty easy to frame a shot with the Windows Snipping Tool. You just drag a box around whatever you want to capture.

Hello. What model of Dell laptop do you have? I'm asking because that won't work on any of the Dell laptops that I have owned. On any of mine, you need to press the Fn key along with the PrntScrn key, as KirkD explained above.
[The reason I mention laptops is that this thread is on the Laptop forum.]
