A screenshot is a photo of the screen, snapshot, which you can paste into documents or you can save as a JPG image. It's like taking a picture of your computer monitor with your phone, but with a much better quality.

First of all a curiosity: can apps like Zoom, Skype, Messenger and Meet, during meetings or lessons in DAD, detect if we take a screenshot from Windows PC? Theoretically NO, but remember that you should request consent from the people visible in the photograph! At the very least, if you really have the doubt that the notification will arrive to the other participants, you could set fire to another window on the desktop (which does not cover the window where the meeting or lesson takes place) and take a screenshot of the whole monitor.

After choosing what to capture, the screenshot is available on the clipboard, to be then pasted into other programs.
