I was wondering how it is possible to take a screen shot of a desktop icon such as a shortcut so i can use it in a document. I mean i can use ctrl and print screen but that gets the background... any help?

What in particular are you looking for? Because you can always grab a gif of the icon from the program file or if it is in Windows itself
%SystemRoot%\system32\SHELL32.dll

open the containing folder which the icon is in, then you'll be able to take a screen shot on a white background from which you can crop the needed image.

You could also change the Desk Top to a white background, take your screen shot and then change the Desk Top back to what it was.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
