I'm using Windows 7.For the life of me I can not get a screen shot of a page and drop it into an email for example. I have the Window 7 bible I have followed the steps to use screen shots but it does not work. Any help would be appreciated.
Yup that helped, I have saved the screen shot to paint now all I need to do is figure out how to get it from paint to the email, I never use paint so it's very new to me.I'm using Windows 7.
What I do is Ctrl and PrintScreen together, then do a right-click paste into whatever I've got open. If I put it into an email, I usually edit it in Paint first to cut the size, then save it and insert the picture.
Hope that helps.
If you want to put it in an email, you should be good. Email software (up to and including using Gmail's web interface) are smart enough to detect when you paste a picture that it should insert the picture into the message.

I have noticed in some threads I follow in RR that some members are posting what looks like a screenshot. Maybe they are not screenshots if not I would sure like to know what they are,
As I said in post # 11, they are posting either an inline image or sending a picture as an attachment. They are screenshots, but you can't just paste them from the PrintScreen key into the body of the forum post. You have to do one of the two methods I mentioned in post # 11.I have noticed in some threads I follow in RR that some members are posting what looks like a screenshot.

So what I am trying to do is take a picture of a program that is running on my desktop called DSD +. and post it on a thread in RR so I can show others a problems I am having with DSD. I can do everything mentioned above but I can't seem to drop it into the thread I want.
It is kind of funny that the computer I have at work is identical to my home computer and all I have to do on that computer is hit print screen, go to the page where I want to drop the screen shot and then right click and paste, but I can't do it with this computer. I will keep plugging away at this, I will try a few other suggestions mentioned above also, Thanks for the help.
