    Hit the print screen button, then paste the pic in paint and that's it... /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    Control-Print Screen will grab the entire screen.
    Control-Alt-Print Screen will grab just the active window.

    If the browser is set at full screen, then yes, either method will get the whole thing. The Ctrl-Alt-Print Screen thing is good for creating training manuals and stuff for software that uses small popup windows, capturing alert messages, etc. It will grab just the top active window without all the "other" stuff in the background. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif
