How To Capture a Screen Shot of your Desktop or the Active W

Post by jkakashi01 on Sun Mar 16, 2008 4:50 pm

You want to capture a screenshot of your desktop but your screenshot capture program is already expired or you don't have any screenshot at all?
Have you ever pressed the PrtScn (print screen) key on your Windows keyboard and wondered why it was there since it never seemed to do anything? Well, it does do something! It copies an image of your screen onto the "clipboard," ready to paste into any graphics program. These steps show you how to use it along with Windows' standard image editor, Microsoft Paint, to save an image of your screen.

Here's How:

Arrow Press the Print Screen key on your keyboard. It may be labeled [PrtScn].
Arrow Open an image editing program, such as Microsoft Paint.
Arrow Go to the Edit menu and choose Paste.
Arrow If prompted to enlarge the image, choose Yes.
Arrow Optional: Use your image editor's crop tool to crop out unnecessary portions of the screen shot.
Arrow Go to the File Menu and choose Save As.
Arrow Navigate to the folder where you want to save the image.
Arrow Type a file name for the image.
Arrow Select a file type.
Arrow Click the Save button.


TIPS:

Arrow Hold the Alt key down while pressing Print Screen to capture only the active window.
Arrow Generally the GIF format works best when saving screen shots of application windows. The JPEG format usually makes screen shots (especially those with text) blurry, blotchy and discolored.
Arrow The Windows " clipboard" is a term used to describe the temporary storage space in memory where an item is placed when you copy or cut. When you paste, the item is transferred to the program you're working in. If you copy something else, the old item is replaced with the new. You can't navigate to or manipulate the clipboard directly; it's only used for copy and paste operations.
Arrow If you have windows Vista, you can capture screen shots much more easily using the Snipping Tool included with Vista.



Now you can save screenshots of your desktop without any screenshot program... jive
