Top right on your keyboard is Print Scrn/SysRq. Press that, then in your email editor Ctrl +V to paste it.

I tried your link, here: WIKIHOW. Fine, and I use the w7 snipping tool, but onthelimit1's method, which after years of using PC's I did not know, was far quicker and a brilliant tip! Thanks.

As an alternative, MWSnap (see http://download.cnet.com/MWSnap/3000-2072_4-10524229.html) enables one to capture precisely the part of the screen that you want. Note - I'm using it with WinXP, hope it still works with later OSs.

Print Screen captures the entire screen. Alt+Print Screen copies only the active window.

Print Screen does not seem to work with FF and GMX. I have to paste into Paint and save as a jpg from there.

In FF "ctrl" and "prtscn" together copy the screen to your clipboard. From there you can copy it to your word processor.

My email client GMX will not allow pasting images/pictures from the clipboard, just tried your suggestion.

SillBill, that doesn't mean it won't work for ponytail and the email he is using.
