    Windows xp help still states that one can print the active window by pressing ALT+Print Screen.
    I am unable to get it to work
    Help also states to copy the entire screen as it appears on your monitor "press Print Screen"
    How does one copy a website screen with windows?
    I have two keys on theis keyboard. PrtScn and Print.

    Neither one works??
    Any help would be asppreciated.

    I have a program called Printkey 2000 that was free. It works great. I use it a lot. I don't know where I got it. Just Google it!

    Using the Prtscn key simply copies the screen to the Windows "clipboard"

    Opening up any application that allows to paste into will then paste the image.

    Such as Word or many image editors.

    Are you saying that this does not work for you, or are you expecting it to output the copy straight to the printer? (it does not work in that way)
