Enable Sound Alert For PrintScrn Key on Windows 10

Windows 10 allows users to take a screenshot with the Win+PrintScrn keyboard shortcut. It works in all versions of Windows: On your keyboard, press the PrtScn (Print Screen) key. Windows creates a screenshot of the whole screen and saves it to the clipboard. But, it’s difficult to confirm if the desired screen space was grabbed when. Don’t wory! You can add a sound to the Print Screen Key so that every time you press it to capture a screen sound, it will make voice on your Windows 10 PC.
