Amatuer Question
Bare with me....

 12:59 am on May 3, 2001 (gmt 0)

How would you go about taking a screen shot of the desktop..I thought it had something to do with hitting 'print screen' but where would it save the images at?

Sorry, it's just one of those things..you know, dumb question..simple answer..webmaster hitting himself afterwards...

Printscreen then paste into graphics program, or use snagit [techsmith.com], it comes with a 45 day trial.

In Windows, you can also paste directly into a Word document. That comes in handy when someone reports an oddity on a page that I can't see. Even though not all my clients have image editing (or know what to do with it), they all have MS Word.

Don't feel bad. It took me *forever* to figure that little trick out. It is definately not something obvious.

I usually hit "Print Screen" and then open paint or picture viewer (is that the right name?) and "Edit" -->"Paste" or "Paste as new image". I like picture viewer because you can crop, but if you have to point something out, (like draw a big arrow) you have to put it in paint first, draw the arrow and then take a screen shot of that to paste into Picture viewer to crop. Picture Viewer is also nice because you can change the full color to black and white if you need to save space to send in an email to someone.

But no matter how nicely you ask, I am not going to "bare" anything... Mivox and Tedster might just be willing to remove their coverings, but I just can't.. ;) :)

Thanks guys, I downloaded snagit and it is quite a useful little program :). Works well with FireWorks..
