Matlab: capturing screen

    I want to print the complete work screen of Matlab, I mean, with the control bars and the workfield. You can see this kind of printing in manuals and so. It is like capturing the screen (including the window upper bar) and printing.

    But anybody here knows how to do it?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hit the "print" button on your keyboard, go to paint and press Ctrl-V.

    EDIT: For clearification: That´s how you do a screenshot in Windows. If your Matlab runs in fullscreen or on another OS that probably won´t help you.

    Thanks to both of you.

    I have a new portable computer, and I wasn't seeing the print key well, because there is no drawing on it. In fact, it can be read "PrtSc" on it. After trying all the keys I have had success. Thanks :smile: .
