Hi folks,could someone tell me how to save a receipt for something bought online.There's an option to print it but I don't have a printer.I've done this before but can't remember how.I'm using windows vista.Thanks.

You could take a screen shot and save that.
Display the receipt > press Print Screen > navigate to MS Paint > click Edit then Paste then Save As....and decide where and what you want to call it.

Just noticed the Vista bit - the principle is the same by the words may be different ;-)

When I choose print it's only giving me the option to use a printer.There's a "print preview" ption that opens up the receipt in a word document but there's no option to save it?Any other ideas?Thanks.

You Print Screen by pressing the Print Scrn key on the keyboard (top right a bit). Don't go to File > Print....that's not the right place ;-)

You should find MS (Microsoft) Paint under Start > Programs > Accessories but that's under XP so your Vista may be a bit different. The principle is the same though.

Thanks folks.I managed to do it by right clicking on the screen and choosing "print preview" then saving it MS paint.Thanks wotbus.

Why not just save the email as text?

It wasn't an email I was trying to save it was an actual screenshot.Thanks.
