How do I take a screen shot/capture

Q: How do I take a screen shot/capture

I tried taking a screen shot by using the Print Screen Button on my keyboard but does not do it. On my other laptop which has Vista, it was easy but on this laptop, Win 7, I can't. I do have the snipping tool but I want to do it the other way. When I was able to do it, it would open up as a new image in my Paint Shop Pro. Any help appreciated. My laptop is a Toshiba

I'm using a 6-7 year old HP lappy for Win8 Pro. No uEFI, but I don't think having uEFI or not is likely to matter WRT my problem (could be wrong though). I can't do the direct screen-shot capture described in this tutorial. I don't think the snipping tool can be used to do what I want. Actually, I am not sure the screen-shot capture would do the job either. I am trying to get a screen shot particularly of the metro start screen and also some other metro screens. Does anyone know if the screen-shot capture allows one to get screen shots in the metro area? Is there any way to get them using the snipping tool? Is there any other screen-shot software that would get the job done?

Can you suggest a fix for my installation assuming that's the problem? Automatic repair repaired nothing, and sfc /scannow found no corruption. I won't do a reset, refresh, or other reinstall of my system to eliminate my problem.

Does alt-printscreen do anything for you? On my system, it captures a screenshot to the Windows clipboard. I can paste it into Paint (the desktop application).

I have been trying to use both the Snipping Tool and the Print Screen keys to capture an image of the drop down list (and sub drop down lists) that appear under Tools in Firefox.

But when I open the drop down menus, and click on either the Snipping Tool icon, or the Prt Scrn key, the opened drop down menus collapse back up into Tools.

How can I capture an image of what the drop down lists look like?

A:[SOLVED] How to capture screen shot of drop down menus?

Hi cashcqshel,

Hopefully this is what you mean?

When Firefox is first open, press ALT once and release. You should now see the toolbar appear at the top of the page. Click on Tools to show the sub-menu and move the mouse away from the area (without clicking) unless you wish to expand further menus within the sub-menu, so it's not shown in the screen capture. Now just hit Prt Scr and dump the image (CTRL+V) in to Paint (hit CTRL+V when Paint or PS is open) or PS and crop what you want out.

I was using Firefox v6.0.2

In desktop mode of Windows 8 you can use the snipping tool (love that little guy) or Sent to One Note screen capture tool to grab a snapshot of any part of your computer screen. However, neither of these applications work in "Metro" mode. How can I snag a small screen capture in modern UI mode of Windows 8 on my PC? I know on my Surface I can take full screen captures using the Start Button+Volume Down key, but how about on a PC and how about something smaller than the entire screen?

A:How do you take a screen shot / capture of modern UI apps in Windows 8?

On a PC it is really easy to take a screen shot. Just press the "Prt Scr" button on your keyboard. Then open Paint (or any other image editing software) and press "Ctrl+V". The screen shot will get pasted into the app. And if you want something smaller than the entire screen then just select the portion you want and crop the image.

I have this really annoying problem and I'm about to conclude that it's time to buy a new video card but I'm hoping there is another way to fix this.

Please Look Here:

Those lines keep coming up every once and a while. Whenever they appear, the only way to remove them is to shut down my PC, wait for a couple minutes and then start it again.

Sometimes this happens after a couple of hours of running my PC, and sometimes it takes days. It's not stable at all.

I've scanned my PC for viruses and errors but nothing seems to fix the problem. I've updated to the latest ATI Radeon drivers with no luck. Also someone posted that he has this problem and tried to format his PC but still the same.

I have an ATI Radeon 9800 Pro (updgraded it to Pro long time ago by changing the BIOS).

If there is anyway I can fix this without replacing the card I would love to know how.

Thnaks in advance.

What I mean is, I try to take a screenshot of a game I'm playing (Diablo 3 in particular) and it's like my computer doesn't even know it's running/it's invisible to it. I get a screenshot of my desktop instead.

The first time I tried to paste it, I got a strange result, in that it just gave me a grey box, instead of the screenshot, thereafter, this started happening.

Print screen copies your screen, then you can paste it into an image in paint, photoshop, etc.

What you need to do is hit print screen (control is not necessary) and then paste (File>Paste) inside of an image program such as MS Paint, Fireworks, or even MS Word. If you are on a laptop you may need to use the Function key to use print screen.

Then save/export the image based on the options available in your particular program.

Do you have Irfan or some sort of photo editoring program? If not go here, read about it and download Irfan and the plug-ins.

1) To take your screen shot, press Print Screen key - or you can actually use Irfan to do it.
2) Once you have a screen shot, open it in Irfan (edit->paste).
3) Crop (cut out everything not needed). Resize. Save as a GIF file to your hard drive.
4) If a GIF turns out to still be too large, convert to a JPG and see it that helps. Most screen shots can be well below 200K.

I didn't know whether to put this in the games forum or here, but I thought that as I'm pretty sure this is a hardware issue, I'd put it in here.

Whenever I'm playing a game, my pc will freeze, with the image of whatever I was just doing stuck on the screen, in effect, a screen shot. The more demanding the game, the longer it will take to happen, so, using 4 games I own, Counter Strike: Source Team Fortress 2 > Left 4 Dead > Assassins Creed (read: CS:S will take longer than Tf2 etc). The only way to fix this is to restart my pc, using the button on the case, because as I said, it's totally frozen.

I'm fairly sure this isn't an overheating issue, I had my graphics card at around 55-60C (131-140F) while playing Left 4 Dead and my CPU at around 35-40C (95-104F) while playing Left 4 Dead.

My system configuration is as follows:

CPU: AMD Phenom 8450 (2.1GHz x3)
GPU: Palit ATi HD 4870 Sonic Dual Edition (1Gb)

I have to say I don't really mind Vista. I am using Vista64 and except for the lack of some software for it, it runs pretty good. Having said that, the last couple of days Vista has been sluggish. For example, when I open a Word document and just press and hold a letter to to continually type, after about 10 repetition, it just stops(when Vista is healthy, it can repeat the letter hundreds of time without a hick up). I happened to press letter "g" and hold it down. After a few repetitions, the typing stopped and the screen changed to an interesting back ground, or foreground, since it was over all my windows. Clicking on the desktop would get rid of it. Take a look and see what you think. Note, I used Paint to edit the printscreen and it only shows the middle of my desktop. The rest of the screen is just that gray color.

when ever I take a screen shot it comes out as a PNG photo in the
screen shots file, all screen shots do. and I cannot figure out how to change it. and I need to change it because
it seems to open with a photo program is not working right. except it runs on the intel system, except the only
intel on here is the mother board, and it's not even a factory production. so getting anything "intel" working
right is getting harder to do.

so now the PNG photos are not printing as a whole page. filed as a screen shot, but will not print the whole page. even though it was in the middle if the screen.. can I get out of PNG and in to something like jpg, or some other thing at the end
at the end of each photo. these 2 screen shots may give you a very basic idea of what i'm up against. right now is to get out of this PNG. thanks for your help you can provide have a great day

**Problem fixed, I just uninstalled internet explorer 9 and all is well**

A friend has asked me multiple times to fix his computer for him. I think he looks at porn, but that's not my place to judge. I usually just go through recent installs and remove those programs and then run Bit Defender 2012, which usually does the trick, but this time it's not working. One time I literally had to wipe his computer and give him a clean install, but that is only because the computer was completely unusable.

Right now, the computer powers on fine, everything except two programs seem to run fine and nothing major ever pops. The only thing that comes up is the image I have attached on boot and every so often for no reason. If someone could chime in and give me some help, that would be great!

Not sure what's happened here. However, I went to restart my computer and when it came back up I had a Rocket Tab and taskeng.exe error. I'm uncertain as to what is causing this.

I have run scans. Have manually gone through files, and nothing is picked up in regards to this. Could this be a virus/trojan ? Is there a way to keep this from continuously popping up upon each restart ? Screen Shot enclosed . Any help would be most appreciative .

I'm trying to partition my 500 GB hard drive into 3 drives total. Right now, there is only a C Drive, but I want to divide that.

When I go into the Windows 7 installation, this is what I see:

Extend and new are grayed out, and even in disk management, there is no unallocated space.

Can somebody please guide me into partitioning this hard drive. I've searched and the only answers I find are for dual boot setups. Partition Magic is not supported by Vista (.: 7 as well).

Any help is greatly appreciated.

You can capture a screen shot on any Windows computer by hitting Print Screen key. (look on top row, right of function keys). Some keyboards might abbreviate it something like PrtSc. This "copies" the screen image. Then just Paste it into a program like Start->Accessories->Paint

When I use my Screen Shot function, I can easily paste it into a blank Word document, or most Photo imaging programs. But I cannot paste it as an insertion into a OE email. Yet, if I paste it first into a Word doc or blank canvas of a photo grogram, then I can immediately copy THAT image into an email. Why is this, and what can I do to make it paste directly into an OE email? thanks.

It's one of those things that is not affecting use but has become an annoyance. You can click yes or no and continue working.

Hey every one,

3drealms the creator of Duke Nukem 3d has released a screen shot for Duke Nukem: Forever. Now this isn't a official screen shot of Duke Nukem: Forever. What I mean by that is, is that the ONLY purpose this screen shot was released to the public was to bring in more employees for the company and nothing more. The screen shot can be found on site. Here is a direct link to the advertisement:

Click here.

Here is the screen shot:

This is confirmed by the owner of the company that this is in fact a real screen shot from with in the game.

I guess I'll reconfirm what I said last night. That's an in game, real-time shot of Duke standing in a random hallway. It was really done as a small teaser for a job ad on Nothing more.

I'm glad some of you enjoyed it, and we'll show more later as we start to wake from our slumber and decide how best to show the game off.Click to expand...

Now I know there are some people who don't even know who this Duke Nukem guy is. Duke Nukem 3D was a video game released in 1996-97 for the PC. The guy you play in Duke Nukem 3D is the same guy in the picture posted above. Ever since Dike Nukem 3D was released they have been making Duke Nukem: Forever.

This game has been in devolopment for almost 10 years now and its been 5 years since they've released any type of media.
