For diagnostic purposes, I've been asked to take a screen shot and send it to a technician. How do I do this? I found a way to get a screen shot on the clipboard, but technician said to save it as a .bmp file. My only option seems to be a .clp. When I click "all files" I get a list of what I assume are existing .bmp files. Frankly, I'm confused. Any help will be appreciated.

Ken:

What program are you using to save your screen shot? Here is what I suggest:

Get your screenshot to clipboard.

Click start/programs/accessories/PAINT. Then, click Edit/paste, or press CTRL + V. This will paste the clip to the page.

Then click File/save As... Choose bitmap from the type if that is not already selected, then type in a name, and notice on the top pull-down menu where the picture is being saved.

Josh,

Thanks for your response. Since writing original question, I have been doing much "research". One outcome of this was that I downloaded Microsoft"s ClipBook to replace the clipboard. To save screen shots, I have now found 3 options: (1) click print screen, (2) highlight and click "copy" which seems to autmatically put text that I am interested in printing after putting on notepad, and (3) Clicking on the "screen capture" on the menu for Power Bar (a download I learned about from one of the newsletters that I have subscribed to). (By the way, I think I am really going to like this Clipbook, since it lets me same screen shots as "pages".


Getting the item to the clipboard/book is not a problem. Using Paint is. When I click on edit/paste "paste" is greyed out. Rather, I must indicate where I want to get the item to be pasted from. To get the clipboard/book I tried to click "c">programs>accessories. Accessories opened, but all that was listed was "backup" and "hyperlink".

By experimenting, I did find that I could get the screen shot more or less in shape to email it by opening Word, pasting the clipboard/book item on a document, then emailing the document. Only tried it with text, don't know if it will work with the picture of a notice window that the technician wants me to send.

Obviously I am going to Paris to get to China. Any further guidance you can give me will be appreciated.

The "Print Screen" key will take a screenshot (up above your Insert key) - you can then paste it into a graphics program to edit and/or save and copy to cd. If you don't have a graphics program already, I use the free http://www.irfanview.com I use it's screen capture facility, rather than Print Screen, but it's the same end result.
