We're currently switching users who still use legacy software running in DOS from Win98 machines to WinXP machines. On the Windows 98 machines, the users could do a Shift + Print Screen and it would go directly to the printer and print the screen. Apparently XP did away with that function. Anybody know any easy ways to get that back? We have a piece of freeware sitting in the wings that will do it, but I'm somewhat hesitant to put that on. I know Microsoft is trying to eradicate DOS and it's only an emulator in XP. Also, doing a normal Print Screen or Alt + Print Screen and pasting it to Word is too much for these people, trust me, that was my first suggestion. Thanks.

Hi swaters,

Is the freeware Gadwin, by any chance? If not, you might want to try it.

http://www.gadwin.com/printscreen/

I've attached a screenshot of the setting you want. It's better than M$s version, in that you can use the mouse cursor as a pointer if you want; as I've done.

It's free, easier to use, you can choose the exact image size/area that you want without any thirdparty cropping, and if you don't like it, it was free anyway.. :D

Cheers

Liam

Me again...

Can only attach one image per post, but this one shows the versatility of it, in that this image took the very same procedure and the same amount of time...

Cheers
