Screenshot in Ubuntu

I recently started using Ubuntu as my primary operating system at home and this afternoon, I needed to take a screenshot of something on my screen. Thankfully, I don’t need to download an application to be able to do so.

To take a screenshot of the whole screen, press the Print key.

To take a screenshot of the active window, press Alt + Print keys.

To take a screenshot of an area, press Shift + Print keys.

Take note that I am using Ubuntu 16.04. I have not tried this on other versions.
