Ctrl print screen isn't capturing the cursor.

Someone here has been having a problem using Print screen. The problem is, he Wants to get the cursor in the capture. He is doing documents that need the cursor to show What is being talked about. So, when he pressed Ctrl-Printscreen, he is able to Paste the capture into a Word document.

He has a Printscreen program, with the Printscreen key set as the Hotkey. That program has a "Capture and Autoprint" that sends the capture directly to the defined printer. Then, there is "Capture and Preview" which brings up a  window, showing the capture, both ways, and allowing you to edit it.  This program captures the cursor, but, adds a few more clicks to the operation, that could take alot of Capture and Pastes.

All he wants to be able to do, is Ctrl-printscreen, open Word and Paste.. done.  Is there a way to modify the Ms-Windows Capture settings?  It used to be able to capture the Cursor also.

Hi Mark_FR,

 

I would suggest you to use Problem Steps Recorder present in windows 7 and check if this helps.You can use Problem Steps Recorder to automatically capture the steps you take on a computer, including a text description of where you clicked and a picture of the screen during each click (called a screen shot). Once you capture these steps, you can save them to a file for further work.

You may refer to the below provided link and check if the steps provided assist you -
