Screen shot or capture screen

Discussion in 'Computer Support' started by notthesamesam, Jul 12, 2003.

  1. Is there a way to make a "picture" of your computer screen without
    downloading a capture program. I'm probably wrong, but I thought there was a
    way to do this through Windows (maybe a clipboard or something?) I hope this
    makes sense! Again, the Microsoft site has nothing, Google shows links to
    software to buy and download, and the help menu for ME shows nothing either.

    clipboard into it

    then open "paint" and hit control v

    Simple. Press CTRL-PrtScr.

    Your screen capture is now sitting in the clipboard, and you can paste it
    into Paint (or any other graphics editor) and save it in any graphics format
    that's available to the editor.
