I am using a sony vaio windows xp program 1200 MHZ intel celeronprocessor. Currently having a problem with fax/answering machine software program. Vendor asked me to take screen shot of error message. Being a computer newbie I joined and researched how to do that at your site. Followed the instructions to the letter and failed. Best I can tell the clipboard is not active when I punch at same time - ALT key+ PRINTSCREEN key, or FLAGkey + PRINTSCREEN, pr CTRL key + PRINTScreen. Nothing comes up to indicate that clipboard exists and the paste function when right clicked is not highlighted which to me indicates that nothing has been copied to be pasted.

If I go to any text document--highlight a section, copy it and paste it elsewhere it works fine. But I can't seem to to get the clipboard involved with the screen shot. Any suggestions?

Are you trying to paste the screen shot into an email? If so, the best way to get that image into an email is to paste the screen shot into a picture editor first (easiest one to use would be Microsoft Office Picture Manager). You could then save this as a .jpeg image and copy and paste it directly into an email. You could also include the screen shot as an attachment.
"And if it is evil in your eyes to serve the Lord, choose this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your fathers served in the region beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord. Joshua 24:15 (ESV)

Use Alt + PrintScreen to take a screenshot of the active windows. Open Paint Program, Ctrl-V to paste it, save it to file and attach this file with your email to support team.

Download this much better clipboard for free. It is simple to use. You will never go back to Windows clipboard.
