How to Take Screenshots With an iPad
iTips: Apple iPad Quick Tips, Tricks & Tutorials

To take a screenshot with your iPad, just press the Power and Home buttons.

Like the "Print Screen" function on a PC? Well, you can do that on the iPad, too.

In fact, all it takes is two button presses. First, hold the power button on the upper right hand side of the iPad and then press the "Home" button (that would be the main button on the middle lower part of the iPad screen). You'll see a flash effect, which is your sign that the screen shot has been taken.

To see your screen shot, just go to the Photos app like with any other image. Voila, that ill-advised photo your co-worker posted while drunk is now preserved for posterity.
