Hey,

Just wondering how you take a snapshot of what is on the monitor as I have seen people do this when they want to show an error messgae for example and post it in a forum

is a print screen ket next to the F12 key.

That will copy to the clipboard.

You can use Alt and Ctrl with that to get different effects - one does just the current window, which is useful.

Bertha, hit your prt scr button while on that page and *I* usually paste it to paint and then save it as a jpg and then do some adjusting to it with a graphics program for size and to crop what you don't want. Liz

The messier ones are bluescreens. Here's a pic of an XP bluescreen. I used it in a post to explain to somebody what data needed to be reported from a bluescreen.

I like to use this natty little freeware utility called hoversnap It is very easy to use and if you use the Ctrl-PrtScrn button then you can specify which bit of your screen you want to take an image of.

Of course once you have your image then you need to upload it. If you don't have any web space then you can use Image Shack

Very easy to use, just browse to where you have the image stored on your hard drive then click host it. Image shack will give you some links to post that will point to your image. Here is one I did earlier this evening where I was talking about speedtests on another board

I usually paste the copy that I get with PrintScreen into Irfanview instead of Paint as this lets me crop the image as I want it.

It is an excelent free little program.

Some time ago I discovered MWSnap, a little freeware utility that you can use to capture sectiosn of the screen, or the entire screen itself.

That and IrfanView are very useful little programs I've found.

Seeing as we are talking about freeware image manipulation/drawing programs, have you seen Paint.Net It is very good although you do need to have the dotNet framework installed for it to work.

Hi...

I use a free app called Screen Hunter => http://www.wisdom-soft.com/products/scr ... r_free.htm

I also have Paint.Net installed and like it. Still learning but starting to like it a little more than Irfanview.
