Screenshots are a quick way to take note of something you see on your laptop. They’re also great for sharing images and videos with friends, family, and followers. If you own a Lenovo laptop, you may be wondering how to screenshot on it. Good news is that screenshotting isn’t hard once you know the steps. There are several ways to screenshot on your Lenovo laptop. Whether you have a Windows 10 Lenovo or an older model, these tips should work for you.

How To Screenshot On Lenovo Laptop

  1. Press the Windows key on your keyboard and select “Start”.
  2. Click on the “All apps” button located at the bottom left of your panel.
  3. Locate and click on “Settings”.
  4. Scroll down to press “System”.
  5. Click on “User Accounts” in the left column where you can select which account to use with the computer at this time, or create a new one if needed. You can set up as many users as necessary, but keep in mind you will be logged into one of them each time you open Windows 10. When creating a new user account, make sure you check “Lock workstation” so others can’t access something they shouldn’t while they are using your computer (“Lock workstation” is an option when creating accounts from within Windows 10).
  6. Click on “Screen saver settings” under Settings > System > User Accounts > Screen saver settings. 
  7. Under Screen saver settings, you will see a few different options. There is a box allowing you to set what kind of images you want to appear on your screen saver and whether or not to disable the device’s screensaver when it is turned on. You can also select whether or not the screensaver will be enabled each time you start your computer or only when it is turned off and when the computer goes into sleep mode.
  8. Click “Set up screens …” which will open a window where you can select from different types of images such as photographs, sketch drawings, clip art, logos and other photo categories for use with your screen saver settings. You can also download photos from a web browser or take photos using your webcam using this same menu option.
  9. After selecting what type of images you want to use with your screen saver settings, click the “Next >” button at the bottom right of the window.
  10.

  11. This will bring up a small window where you can select whether or not someone else wants access to your webcam. Click on “Allow other people” if they want access to your webcam, if you check the box “Is this a private space” then only those users who are allowed access can see what is going on when someone uses your machine for particular purposes such as playing games online with others or watching movies. If someone does not have permission then they will see only white blobs like when you are in video calling mode and there is no one present on the other end of the call or video.
