Screenshots let you capture exactly what you’re seeing on screen, e.g. the visualization in order to share with others or reference later or printing. Creating a button with screenshot functionality in Voyager can be done in two ways.

Method 1: Using Microsoft Paint 

 Is to make a Screenshot in Voyager and use Windows Paint app to print the screenshot.

  1. Add a new button to your visualization project. In the button parameters, set the function to Execute menu command.
  2. In the Short cut, specify "%{PRTSC}" to issue a PrintScreen key press event through that button:
  3. Click this button in run mode and open the MS Paint application. Paste the captured screenshot with CTRL+V.
  4. The screenshot can be printed from MS Paint by CTRL+P.

Method 2: Using Snipping Tool

The second solution includes Snipping Tool in Windows 10.
