    HI,
    I was wondering how some of you guy's do that screen shot of a dialog box and then attach it as a .jpeg :confused:
    If some one could give me a run down on how to do it it would be much appreciated.
    Thanks in advance
    Cheers
    Alan

    Pressing 'Print Screen' will catch the entire screen.

    ALT+'Print Screen' should capture the top (selected) window only

    Then you just paste into your image editing application..

    Did you try looking that question up in the Windows help file? I believe you can find you answer in there too. If you want to take a pic. of the active screen in Windows just use "Alt+prtscrn" key on your keyboard. That will save the image on the clipboard, then just open up your favorite paint program, paste it in and save it as a .jpg!

    There you go, fun stuff!

    Make sure you are holding down the alt button at the same time you are pressing the print screen button.

    I expect you are doing this but i dont know otherwise what the problem could be.
