I thought i would post a neat thing that might help people. Most prob already know about this one but just in case. If you want to take a snapshot of a webpage,error message and desktop just hit print screen then open paint. Then hit ctrl+v. Boom there your snapshot. This also works on word and notepad. I hope this helps people! :thumbsup:

Yes I love the printscreen button. I think it is so much easier to show someone that way than writing it! Nice Post CowsGoneMadd3

I was able to get a snapshot of my desktop in Paint, but not in notepad or word. And what do you do next, to post a snapshot of something in BleepingComputer for instance?

After you have your screenshot you need to "host" the picture somewhere. I use and recommend http://photobucket.com/. It's free and quite easy to use.
Sign up, log-in, click on the "browse" button. Find your screenshot and then click "submit". Your picture will upload and you will see it right there. There will be 3 links under your picture. Use "URL" to post a link to the picture, or use "IMG" to have the picture show up here.
Can't wait to see it. :thumbsup:

What raw said. Lol!!! But in notepad or word you know how most of the time you need to click in the area where you want to type before it will type the letter. Before you copy it to wordpad click in the writing area first that might help.

I don't believe it's possible to paste a picture into a text editor (?)
