I want to be able to press the print screen button and have snagit capture a screenshot of the whole screen and print it directly to the printer, I don't want to see it or review it just hit print screen button and have it come out of my printer, is this possible, if so how do I do it? I can assign the print screen key to capture but from there on I'm lost. Any help would be appreciated ,many thanks. I'm on snagit 13.1.4 on windows 10.

I don't think 13 is much different from 18 as far as presets are concerned.  IF that is the case then this will do it:

You may have to play with printer properties to make it fit the page the way you want

Paul's answer is spot on.
If I may add to it,  depending why you are making prints a thing
to ponder is to also add the "Image Resolution" filter to your preset settings.

The default is only 96 DPI.  I have my print preset set to 300 DPI.

It can make a difference in the print quality.
