After you press Print Screen, open up Paint, or any other image editor, and press Ctrl + V to paste the image from the clipboard, which is where Print Screen copies it to, then save the image.

For those on the cheap wanting more than what clipboard can offer, you can install what was suppose to be the Microsoft's clipboard's replacement -- Paint.net. Gives much more graphics tools, without having to deal with GIMP, or pay for PSP.
