Capturing the image on your screen

Try this: to quickly capture what your looking at on your screen and show it to someone else, use the print screen trick. Looking at your keyboard, you'll see a button marked "print screen" (it's on the right side at the top above the insert key on mine). If you press this button it captures or copies the screen as you are looking at it. The whole screen. To just get the active window (the one on top you are using) use Alt - print screen (press the Alt button first and hold it and at the same time press print screen). After doing one of these things the copy you made is ready to be pasted into your favorite application (the easiest is paint in accessories). you can then save it as a bitmap (filename.bmp) and then attach to an email and send it to a friend.
