Hi Everyone,

This topic doesn't seem to fit in any of the other forums so I'm posting it here. If this is the wrong forum, would someone please scootch it over to the right forum for me?

I'm using an old HP Pavilion 512n. It's running Windows XP Home Edition. The keyboard that I'm using is a DYNEX USB plug-in, Internet ready keyboard.

I tried to do a screen capture by hitting the Print Screen button but when I went to my photo folder to save it there weren't any options on the Edit drop down menu. Everything on that menu was grayed out.

Am I overlooking something, or doing something wrong here? Are there maybe a setting or two that I need to change somewhere to get that thing to act right?

Any help or information will be appreciated.

Thanks,

Wendy

You might also give Faststone Capture a try. It's the only way I do screenshots.

but when I went to my photo folder to save it


You have to open Paint and paste it there
From there you can save it to your photos folder

Hi The weatherman, Hi Bartster, Thanks for the links Guys. Lots of helpful information there, and I love 'Free' stuff too.

Hi garmanma, Thanks for the nudge, that was actually the step that I was missing :thumbsup: . I knew that I use to be able to do it but after having been away from a PC for several months I was drawing a blank on what I was forgetting to do.

Thanks again for your time and help guys.

Wendy
