How to take a screenshot?

This is what I did,

Alt+Print Screen for the window you wish to capture, went to Paint,

Ctrl+V to paste(or Edit > Paste), File > save as Trend Micro.jpg

Then I went to (free to join) clicked on Browse, found the pic, click on Submit.

Left click on the bb code next to Img, then right click on it > copy, then right clicked in this reply >

paste and got this.



Or put the link to the screenshot

Using Paint to PrintScreen and Crop part of a page:

1. Click on PRINT SCREEN. Hold down on the ALT key while doing so to get just the open window.

2. open PAINT

3. click EDIT>PASTE

4. On the left side bar, choose the SELECT tool so that the dotted lines bordering your picture disappear.

5. Using your left mouse button, draw down and across to cover the area you want cropped.

6. Click on EDIT>CUT

7. Click on FILE >NEW

8. When it asks you to "Save changes to Untitled", say NO.

9. Click on EDIT>PASTE.

10. click FILE>SAVE AS

11. Browse to where ever you want to save it.

12. Name it something

13. change the file from a .bmp to a .jpg under SAVE AS TYPE.


I also use ImageResizer, one of
