In previous versions, including Windows 7, users could take a screenshot by using PrtScr key. The captured image will be copied to the Clipboard and users need to use MS Paint or similar tool to save the image.

In Windows 8 Consumer Preview, you can take screenshot by using the same PrtScr key, but if you use Win + PtrScr keys simultaneously, the captured image will be saved directly to Picture folder as PNG File.
