Print screen button



where does the printscreen button save the file @?
can i change where it saves?
what type of file is it?
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.
How do you access the clipboard refered to here?
Open the Photo Editor, under 'edit,' select paste or paste as new image.
thanks Lonman! I think of all the times I have punched the print screen button over and over in pure frustration cause I did not know how to use it!
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 !!!

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?
