In my keyboard the print screen key is very close to the backspace key, and whenever I want to press backspace, instead it takes a screenshot. How can I disable the print screen shortcut?

You can try changing it via

System Settings → Hardware / Keyboard → Shortcuts → Screenshots → Take a screenshot

To disable the shortcut, click the row so that it shows "New accelerator" as shown below and then press the backspace key.
