Screen Shots on PC

If you are running Windows95 or WindowsNT, you can capture an image of your screen using the "print screen" (PRINT SCREEN) key.

(For details, look up "screen capture" under the Windows Help.)

To make a "screen shot":

What happens when you press PRINT SCREEN or ALT+PRINT SCREEN is that Windows copies an image from your screen into the clipboard. You can then "paste" (control-V) the image into any program that can cope with bitmapped images. One simple program you can use for this is "Paint," which typically comes pre-installed with Windows computers. You should be able to find it under the "accessories" menu: see Start -> Programs -> Accessories -> Paint.
