    install gadwin printscreen. Best free software out there and can direct prints to email, a file, clipboard or printer. You can even just drag a rectangle around the portion of screen you want to print etc so saves a lot in ink over time

    Screen Shot?

    Press the key next to F12. It says something like 'PrtSc'... just press that and paste into Paint and you're done!

    Depends on your keyboard, most new ones you can just hit print screen on its own, but I'm assuming op has tried that so it could be alt and printscreen. Control & printscreen only copies the window thats currently being used.

    print screen takes the whole thing but alt print screen only takes the highlighted window.

    i did tell you how to do this the other day..... its quite a handy feature

    Yep, handy to have the choice depending on what you are wanting a screengrab of. Once the data is in the clipboard you can then paste it where you want, the fre image editor irfranview is my choice for quick crops and resizes.
