Default How do I retrieve "print screen" images?

I did a print screen today in Firefox and I want to get the image. I'm not sure what file name it was or which directory it would be in. Any ideas?

"paste" is greyed out. Keep in mind I did "print screen" a few hours ago.

well then you probably dont have it anymore, especially if youve copied something since then, or if youve restarted your computer.

Prnt Scrn in essence is the same thing as right click and copying an image. except you cant do that with your whole desktop, so the Prnt Scrn button is a shortcut to take a picture of the whole screen and automatically copy it for you.

it doesnt save it anywhere until you paste it into a program like MS Paint and save it.

Hmm alright, well I did save the actual page but it saved each individual jpg or icon on the page and put it in one folder. I did find a .htm file that I saved from the page, and it has most all the information except a few icons which got saved in another folder after I also did "save page as". I saved the page because I may be getting scammed on a part I ordered via phone from a car parts store.
