Anyone can copy the URL (that's the web address) that you put in your question and paste it into their browser to go to the page where they can see the record.

You can post a link that can be clicked to go there directly like this:

If you want to put a picture of what that page looks like in your question, it is more complicated.  You need to go to the page and capture the screen, then cut off the parts that you don't need, and save the result as a jpg file.  Then you need to upload that image someplace where you can store it on the internet and, finally, you will then be able to click the little icon in the edit box here that looks like a picture of mountains, sky, and sun and put the URL of the image in there.  That will make it display in your question.

For this purpose, it is enough to just post the URL or a link to it - everyone here can then go there to view the record, so all the trouble to first create an image and then be able to post it here is really not necessary.

"Print screen" (screen capture) can be useful when what's on your screen is not generally accessible or there's no direct link to it, but neither of those situations applies to the particular example of a 1900 U.S. Census sheet on FamilySearch -- as you said, you can just provide the link (yes, FS requires a login, but it's free), and/or you can download and save the entire image, using the "download" button above and to the right of the image.

I see the census information.  I don't see what you are trying to match to.  I believe you are the only one who can determine if this is a match.
