    Did you check whether any of the applications you have can make screenshots - for instance Irfanview, Coreldraw, Photoimpact,Gimp? Anyhow if you don't have any application that can convert bmp to jpeg and you have more than a single picture on your computer imo you should get Irfanview, it's great and it is free.

    yeah, Irfanview is a great little program.. good for slide shows too..

    ALT + printscreen is enough to capture the active window only.

    Paint v5.1 (XP) allows you to save as jpg...

    do a "save as" then change the file type at the bottom.
