I think you will find these instructions easy to follow:

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/43088/how-to-capture-and-edit-a-screen-shot/

Once you have the two files (before, after) finished, you can then open a new Word document, type in the "Before" and cursor down to where you want to put the screen dump you have saved (say in My Pictures) and Insert the graphic. Cursor down from that, type "After" and cursor down a bit, and Insert the second screen dump. Save the document.

If you have any questions, please let us know.
Cheers,
John

I can get the "Before", paste the screenshot, "After", and paste the other screenshot, but i don't see how you would save the resulting document, as a .jpeg, other than taking a screenshot of the document, cropping it, and saving that, as a .jpeg.

How about this. Let's totally skip the saving in PAINT, since the instructions you posted say nothing about the need to edit the image.

Open Word and minimize it. That will be your container for the screen shots.
Do the BEFORE screen capture. The image goes into clipboard.
Click on the Word document, type BEFORE, enter to go to the next line, now paste by using Ctrl-v.
Hit enter, to go to the next line in Word, type AFTER. Hit enter. Minimize Word. Do the AFTER screenshot to clipboard.
Back to Word, and ctrl-v to paste the image.
Save the file normally, as a Word document. It now has everything you need, all in one place.

If you already have your screen shots saved, you can easily bring them into Word.
Main menu - Insert, Picture, From file.
Navigate to file, click on it to insert the picture.
Repeat for the second one.
Save as Word document.

That's exactly what I did, tos226.

That's hard to do, unless you know of another way to do it. (I used Irfanview :thumbsup:)
Read the last line of the original post.

....then save it to a jpeg.

I may be misunderstanding the question, and tried to save a step.
Isn't infranview some sort of screen capture?
I don't use things like that, so not familiar with it.
Normally to do a screen capture I just hit the PrintScrn button for the entire screen, Alt-PrntScrn for the active window. It goes into clipboard, then ctrl-v pastes into a document.

If you have to save jpg then ctrl-v in Paint will paste it in.
Are we talking about the same thing? :thumbsup:

The PrtScrn, Alt-Prt screen on laptops are different - I think on my laptop at hole it's Fn-PrtScrn and Alt-Fn-PrtScrn.


Edited:Oh, I think I see. Ok, so the point is to show at the end that both pics went to word. And save that as jpg. Right? If so, Alt-PrtScrn active window into Paint and save as jpg. Are we now on the same page?

Image editing program.
IrfanView

Correct.
I just cropped the image to remove the Word toolbars, etc.
Of course, to prove it was done in Word, you might not want to crop it. :thumbsup:

I wondered about cropping the evidence of being in Word :flowers:
I also wonder about the purpose and usefulness of this sort of exercise for future life-after-college in the real world :thumbsup: but that's besides the point here, I suppose.
