    Easy way to take a Screen Shot

    I was wondering what is the easiest way to take a "screen shot"? Yesterday I won a Wii and I wanted to take a screen shot of the winning page to add to my post but I didn't know how to do it.

    what is the easiest way? Thanks.

    A search of the forums here, using "screen shot" got me:

    1. have the screen up and showing on the computer.
    2. click your "PrtScrn" button (on a desktop it will be above the number pad, on a lap top near the end of the F keys)
    3. open a paint program (windows paint comes with every windows program and can be found by clicking the start button, then click on "all programs", scroll to "accessories", and then scroll down to "Paint and click)
    4. once your paint program is open, right click on the blank screen and scroll down to "Paste", click
    5. then click on "file" and "save as" and save your captured picture what ever name you want to name it (I usually name mine the name of the win...example if I won a Nestles crunch bar and screencaptured the win, I would name it "Nestleswin.jpg) MAKE sure you have saved it someplace you can find it again such as in the My Pictures folder!!! or email it to yourself by using the instructions given by Penny in the above post!
    6. go to [url
    www.imageshack.com[/url]
    7. click on the "browse" button and go to where you saved your screenshot, once you have found your picture, click on it and then click the OK button.
    now click the "Host it!" button and wait
    8. once the picture has uploaded at imageshack, it will open a new page, and look for the line of HTML coding that at the end of the line says [Forums (1)] behind the coding. Now copy the entire line of coding
    9. come here to the forums, go to the winners circle, start a thread talking about your win, and paste that entire line of HTML coding into your message box..and suddenly that [http://www.imageshack.com] coding will look like this (this is an old win btw);

    P.s. I used the line that says "Thumbnail for forums (1)" behind it, so it will be a small picture, but if you click on the small picture, it will open up to fullsize in a new window!
    Yep GT, that's exactly what I was looking for, thanks!!! 8)

    But... when I get to:

    4. once your paint program is open, right click on the blank screen and scroll down to "Paste", click

    I can't get a menu with R clicking either my winning page or paint??? :cry:

    I KNOW I did this before, so my lack of comprehension really ticks me off!!! :twisted:

    I want to save my Superman returns win page - it's in FF, maybe that's why it doesn't work?

    Belay my last - Bobby helped me!!!

    Re: Easy way to take a Screen Shot

    I save my screen shots in Word & can resize them and put 2 or 3 on a page. I crop the excess & each time I add one I save again. Whenever I want to look at them they're all together. I always expect to win so whenever I'm ready to do the IW's I open the file so it's accessible for me to print the screen shot & save immediately. Later on I'll upload it to imageshack.
