    How to make a screenshot?

    A "screenshot" is a snapshot of what's on your computer screen.

    To create a screenshot the steps are as follows:

    1. The first step is to create the windows that you want to capture and leave them up on the screen.
    2. To the right of your keyboard, you should see a key labeled PrtScrn/SysRq.
    3. Pressing Alt-PrintScreen places an image of the frontmost window on the clipboard.
    4. Pressing just PrintScreen places an image of the entire desktop on the clipboard.
    5. If you press PrtScrn/SysRq, nothing will appear to have happened. However, your computer just took a snapshot of its screen and stored that picture on its clipboard, much as it stores information that you cut and paste.
    6. Open Paint.
    7. Create a new empty image, and use Edit/Paste to bring in the screenshot you just took.
    8. Edit the image to the size you want it to be and discard the unwanted part.
    9. Save the image.

    Paint isn't the only program that you can paste screen shots into. Some others programs you can paste screen shots into include:
    Microsoft Word and Powerpoint
    Microsoft Outlook
    Other graphics software like Photoshop.

    Since some of you have still problems, here some additional info.

    • As soon as you have pasted the screenshot into Paint (point 7 of Becky's post), use the select tool (see image below), and select the part of the image that you need.
    • Then choose copy.
    • After that, choose "New" to open a new file. You don't need to save your previous picture.
    • Then paste the copied part into that new file.
    • Adjust the picture size (Image -> Resize)
    • Be sure to save it as .jpg, otherwise the file size will be probably too big to upload it as attachment here.

    And please keep your image size at max. 640x480 pixel.
