Howdy all... :)

You know sometimes it's hard to prove what the "offer" actually was.

I've had such problems in the past, but there is a great way to avoid a lot of problems with companies lying about the offer.

I use a free program called "Faststone Capture"... It a small program that makes screenshots..
You can automatically snap a pic of your screen, or you can quickly take a pic of the entire offer..
using the scroll screenshot button..

It takes a screenshot of it all, even if it is several screens or pages long & saves it to a folder you select.

I've been using it for a year or so, and a couple of times it has came in REAL HANDY.

Once such incident:
I responded to an offer on the internet for a new cellphone.
The offer said that it came WITH A FREE ACCESSORY KIT... and the shipping charges were also free.

I ordered the phone, but no accessory kit was received... 10 days more waiting and still no acc. kit.

There was a phone number, so I got on it, and the lady who answered told me:
"Oh no, We never offered a free accessory kit with that phone..!

I told her that she was wrong and I could prove it..!
All I needed was their email address and I'd send her some pictures..
I did... and by golly, I got my free accessory kit.

The way I use it... I change the name each time, of the screenshot, so I know what it is..
Like "cellphone #1", cellphone#2, etc.
Each time, usually taking a scroll screenshot of the offer, then the commit to buy screen,..
then the payment screen, and PayPal screens if I used PayPal.

This way I can prove the offer, prove I ordered it, prove I paid for it, etc.

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this little utility.

Howdy.. :)

The old or usual way of doing it is... when you have a 'puter screen you want to save...
you press the "print screen" key on your keyboard, located usually on the top of your
keyboard, just to the right of the f10 key.

Then if you open a word processor, or word pad, or note pad, you can just right click on
the window you just opened and paste the "print screen" picture.

It can then be saved, viewed, or printed.. whatever

Faststone works much faster and better..!
