    @hacodo75 Let me explain what happens when you press the 'prt sc' key. It works just like copy and paste. The picture of the screenshot goes to the clipboard, and waits there until you paste it somewhere. Clear as mud, no? OG TC

    H This is just to show you how easy it is to do screenshots in Linux Mint 19.3. I did this a minute ago, and here it is now: That is how easy it is to do in LM 19.3 In case you just want part of the screen, you can do this: That's really how easy it is with the screenshot tool in LM 91.3...

    help choose linux distro

    Harald, Nothing wrong with your brain! After all, you are giving Linux a try. After you take your 'prt-Sc' pic, you will not find it anywhere visible - UNTIL - you open a word processor: MS Word, Libre Office Writer or some such thing.

    Partitioning Funtoo

    Gparted is not the same as parted, which sometimes comes installed on your distro. Do you have Gparted-live installed on a flash drive? It would help also, if you could give some information about your computer. OG TC
