Well,the thing is that i have FL studio 8 and i have been making some music pretty while lately . One of my friends also got it downloaded but needs my "tutorials" on how to use it.
I was thinking of using the "Print screen" feature of Windows to take snapshots of the screen to send it to him but i dont know how to use it.
Do you just press the "print screen" button and thats it ???if so ,where are the images saved ???
or do you need to press a key combination or something ,i dont know.........
it would also help if i could save the snapshots later in case my other friends would want it
If anyone could explain this to me (ironically,it's one of the only things i dont know about XP) it'll help me a lot!!!

After you take the screen-shot by pressing PrtScn, you then need to open an application such as Paint and paste the image.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.

When you hit the Print Screen button, it stores the image to the Clipboard.
Just like when you highlight some text, right-click, and select Copy.
It will stay there until you copy something else, or close Windows.

To view it, you need to do as Budapest suggested.
Open Paint, or any image editing program you use, and select File/Paste.
That will paste the image into the program.
Do whatever editing you want to, then just select File/Save As..., name it, and save it to a file.
Once it's saved to a file, it will remain there until you delete it.

Or you could use a program like this one. Gadwin PrintScreen

Been in my toolbox for years, absolutely love it. Easy to use, easy to setup and configure.
