Saving Screenshots

Recommended Posts

Most of you here probably know how to do this, but I've come across several situations where I've had to explain this, so it may not be as widespread as I thought. :)

 

To save a screenshot:

 

1. Press the Print Scrn key

2. Click on Start

3. Select Run

4. Type mspaint into the text field

5. Hit Enter

6. From the menu along the top choose Edit

7. Click on Paste

8. From the menu along the top choose File

9. Click on Save

10. Give the file a name and then from the drop-down menu below it select JPEG

11. Click on Save

 

If you only want to save a copy of the current window rather than the entire screen, instead of pressing Print Scrn in the first step, press Alt + Print Scrn.

 

To upload a screen shot so that others can see it:

 

1. Click on Start

2. Select Run

3. Type in http://imageshack.us

4. Hit Enter

5. Select the Browse button on the page

6. Browse for the file you have just saved and then click on Open

7. Click on Host it!

8. Highlight and copy the desired thumbnail/hotlink

 

This lets you show someone what's on your screen, which can come in handy in many circumstances. :)

 

with regards

There is a much easier way.Download Hoversnap here:http://www.snapfiles.com/get/hoversnap.html

Then you can take a screenshot in a few mouse clicks and no writing or editing. :)

Nice to know, but of course, the hassle of downloading a program, and having it edit your registry (I assume that's what it does, or does it install a service set to always run :unsure: ) is a bit too much for some users who like some degree of control over their OS.

 

If you had a Mac, it would be even simpler :P

 

Pointless comments, but I like to throw in my 2 cents. :)

Hi, I was just reading your post about screenshots. I can do everything except

when you get to choosing the jpeg format. My drop down menu has all bitmap choices. Is there another way to get a jpeg image? cnmon.

It may be worth your while posting that question in User to User Help, or try googling for it. :)

I've actually seen this happen before. I think to me. I forget what it was, and why it happened. I think it was because I was using Windows ME. :yucky:

 

You can upload .gif files, or .png files, to imageshack, right?
