[SOLVED] how to take screenshot

Post by jarp53 »

I have Linux mint Fxce 19.3 ; and would like to take a screen shot of a video that i may use it for a wall paper or just to keep, when I press Prtscn , I get "screenshot " which makes the progress video and title show up on the screen so I can never get a clean picture of the screen; is there a way to make this tool to function the way I want to or is there a better app that I can use

Mint comes with a Screenshot Application (called Screenshot).
If that will not do you then there are others also available via Software Manager etc..
