    Find the screen you want to copy - set it up exactly how you want others to see it, then press "Alt" key and while holding that button down, press "Print Screen" key.

    Next paste it to your e-mail, or word program, etc ... :cool:

    I've tried that-Alt and Print Screen but I get nothing, no prompts, no options, nothing. I have a relatively new computer (year old), XP, Dell.

    After you press the Print Screen key, you have to paste the image somewhere like in an e-mail message. You click Edit -> Paste.

    You aren't going to get a prompt, just trust me, it's there on your clip board. Try it. :)
