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.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
