Silly question, but HOW do you take a screenshot?

I assumed their would be a simple method, surely there must be.

The problem I have with listed methods is that I use a second screen for instructions etc. When I use Winkey+PrtScr I get both screens n the picture.




Solved my problem of using 2 monitors by using the Windows Sniping Tool.

Problem is pausing the sim, adjusting Sniped area, is a nuisance and means missing some moments.

Most people buying FS2020 do so for the great scenery  -  but no screenshot tool provided.

I don't like being critical but,   ehhhhhhhhh

I enabled the Game Bar in Windows, and Win+Alt+PrtScr does a great job at taking screenshots and saving them automatically. Basically works the same was a V used to work in P3D.
