If you are using Windows 10, try this:

On the top row of the keyboard, toward the right, there should be a key marked something like "Prt Sc".

Press this once.

This copies everything that is on the screen to the clipboard.

Then fire up paint (or any other graphics package) and paste.

You can then edit the image and/or save it as .jpg, .png, bmp or whatever you prefer.

You should also be able to paste into Word or Wordpad, although I don't think you can then edit the image.

 

The browser you you are using should not affect this.

Another option is installing a print screen app. Advantage of the app is it gives you more control over what part of the screen you capture, and it'll save the screenshot to a file as well as the clipboard.

The one I've been using for years is Gadwin PrintScreen.

Not the same really as a screen copy.... that copies a particular image you are hovering over but useful to know.

It isn't a function of the browser more the laptop itself.... for me it is FN (Bottom left area)  + Prt SC (upper right of keyboard.(Two keys at same time). Then a .png file is placed in my Screenshots directory in Onedrive.

Good question and some useful answers. I have learned things that I didnt know. Moral of the story is to keep asking.
