    >>Don't know why, but with my 2k machine I can not get it to take a shot of my screen, maybe I'm doing it wrong. I thought it was F11, or F10 then paste to mspaint. I got it to work once, then for months it would only show the same desktop when I pasted now it won't even paste WTF, ps Now it's doing the same thing for XP<<:confused::confused:

    press [ctrl] & [printScreen] @ the same time and paste it ( [ctrl] [v] ) into your paint prog.

    dos, print screen and xp

    Anyone tried to Print Screen from a full-screen DOS application in graphics mode under XP?

    I know that DOS is emulated in XP, and that might be the porblem... I've tried PrintScrn (next to F12) and then pasting outside DOS, HyperSnap-DX 5, Snag-it, etc..

    Anyone who could help - very much appreciated.

    :)

    Thanx, TwoZigzagColt45

    I gave it a try... the thing is, it's a running QBasic program, loaded by QB.EXE (old language - don't laugh) that I want to capture, rather than the executable itself, so I think there's still a problem. It's odd, because I used to be able to do this - no problem - under Win9x using PrintScrn key.

    Anyway, thanks again for the suggestion :)
