>>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 :)

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
