Something cool for Windows XP and Vista users.
Monday. 3.23.09 11:31 am
Thanks to all the mo rons that like to blog while nutang is out of order my blog that I made before the crash was never read so I am reiterating.

Have you ever needed to rememeber something that popped up on your screen? Ever been to a site like flicker and wanted to save a private photo or a a image made by a flash object? Take a large picture of your avatar on IMVU? Need a screen shot from your windows desktop?

Here is the key. Windows XP users can take screen shots of anything on your screen. It's this simple. On a standard keyboard simply Press the PRINT SCREEN Button. Or PRT SCRN on some keyboards.

After pressing the PRT SCRN button the screen is turned into an image and is stored on the clip board. To view edit and save it simply goto MSPAINT or some kind of image program and click EDIT then PASTE. What you done is copy the screen and pasted it to Paint.

Windows Vista Home Premium, Enterprise, Small Bussiness, and Ultimate have a screen shot capture tool, called the Snipping Tool.

Really cool little tool you can select portions of the screen to capture. You can do a freehand capture, a rectangular capture, a window capture or of course a full screen capture. Once you capture something a preview window comes up and you can save it from there, however it cannot capture it's own window. I got that screen shot from using the PRT SCRN button.

Tee hee
This was one of the first things I discovered on Vista...there's a lot of stuff embedded in Flash these days to keep people from downloading it, but clearly there's no way to stop the snipping tool ;)
