Hello all!

I'm not so active in this forum because, if i have something problem with my pc, normal situation i can handle it.

BUT.

Now i'm in big trouble ... okok not so big, but i can't handle it and this makes me angry.

Situation is:

- ewerybody know if you hit the "print screen" button on your keyboard, your current displayed screen is going to the clipboard.

- after that you can easily save your screenshot with any image editor app (for example MSpaint) choosing the "paste" or "paste from clipboard" commands.


I'm in trouble because when i make this procedure i got strange results----------------->

Image width is double 2048 and my wallpaper is next to the screenshot?????

WHY?

Sorry for my really bad english.

Have you tried it again since?

To me it looks like your wallpaper and your screenshot were somehow both on the clipboard.
Pretty neat effect!
