It saves it in the clipboard. You can paste it into a photo editing program and save as whatever you want... I use .jpg because it's good quality and small.

Open the Photo Editor, under 'edit,' select paste or paste as new image.

You're welcome, and you're not alone. I thought it was broke for 5 years, lol.

I am sure Lonmans not alone in this issue... its a well handy tool... why use third party software when you can use windows?

(quick poll of an IT office and only 33% of people knew it lol!!)

also if you hold down the ALT key and press Print Screen key , it will open copy the active window and not the entire screen !!!

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!
