    Watching a video in Windows Media Player...I wanted to get a screen of a part of the video. So I press PrintScreen...and travel over the MSPaint. Hit paste..and lo and behold...the screen is there...except the video is still playing! LOL

    I tried to pause the video..then save. But when I reopen, where the video should be it is black. Is there a way to make screen grabs of videos in WMP? Thanks

    I think this question has been kicked around before, I just don't remember what the answer was or how to query the search base here for it.

    I'm going to move this to the All other Software forum, since it is really a Windows Media Player, not an XP question; I will edit the topic also.

    Perhaps one of the denizens there will recall this one.

    Here's one I remember: try IrfanView, it worked when I tested it.
