How do I Print Screen?

  pherpo 22:14 17 Jul 04

When I press shift + print screen, nothing happens. I want to send a screen shot by email, but don`t know how to do it. I am using windows xp home edition with sp1. Please advise this novice.

In doing the above you have copied it to the clipboard, just right click and and paste it wherever.

press the print screen key, then open say paint and paste it in there.

if you just want the active window then press alt and print screen. and again paste it itno an application like word or paint.

I should add paste it into a photo editor, and save as jpeg. Then import it into your email client.

where is the clipboard? i can`t find it anywhere.

You have a photo editor in xp goto start/programs/accessories/paint.

Just to be clear press shift and print screen, then open the Paint program. Then goto edit (on the toolbar) and click paste the pic will appear.

Now goto file and save as a jpeg.

You should be able to paste in any program. Just start a Photo program or text and press paste key

"where is the clipboard? i can`t find it anywhere."
The clipboard is a temporary file where things that have been copied or cut are held until needed.
