What do you mean?

Do you mean taking and opening a screen capture?

Or a halftone screen?

Or the print dialog?

Here is normally, how I do it in my previous Window Xp pc.

1. I would do a print screen on my pc.
2. Open Paint or other softwares
3. Press Ctrl+V, to paste
4. The captured print screen would be display or uploaded for editing.

Now I am using Window 10, how to do in Photoshop?

Thank you.

With Photoshop, here are the steps.
1. Capture a print screen on my pc.
2. Save capture print screen as a file (extra step)
3. Open Photoshop
4. Open file (extra step)

Short cut which I have been using for ages
1. Capture a print screen on my pc.
2. Open Software
3. Press Ctrl+V (paste)

Can improve on the coming updates of Photoshop?

Thank you very much.

No, there is no need to save the capture as a file. Just create a new document in Photoshop to paste the result into, like I said.

Thank you.

That is exactly, what I am looking for but where to click for new document.
There only 3 icon display in Photoshop, ie. Picture Library, Adobe Revel and Camera.

When I click on Picture Library, it Is asking me to open a file, there no new document function button, where do I find this new document function?

Thank you.

Photoshop doesn't have any buttons like that.
Are you confusing Photoshop with Elements?

And Command/Control-N is the new document command, or use File -> New... like every other application.

Here is how to screen capture in Photoshop.
1) Open  Photoshop
2) Go to - File >>New (a new action frame is opened there in "Preset" - make sure it says "Clipboard") click OK
3) Open screen you wish to capture and press Alt +Print Screen
4) Back in Photoshop you will have an open new work space click Ctrl +V and your image is pasted into the new work space.
