Press “Windows + Shift + S”. Your screen will appear grayed out and your mouse cursor will change.

Click and drag on your screen to select the part of your screen you want to capture.

A screenshot of the screen region you selected will be copied to your clipboard. You can paste it in any application by selecting Edit > Paste or pressing Ctrl + V, just as you’d paste a full-screen shortcut taken with the Print Screen key.

On older versions of Windows, this shortcut is part of Microsoft’s OneNote application.

With the Creators Update, Microsoft integrated this shortcut into Windows 10 itself.
