Sometimes you would like to capture what is on your screen; this can be done using the Print Screen button and a graphic application like Microsoft’s Paint.
First get something on the screen you want to capture… I used the TOW web site located at
When you find what you want to capture then push the Print Screen button on your keyboard.
Pushing the button puts the contents of the screen into clipboard (temporary memory).
Now open up Paint by going to start – programs – accessories – paint
In your paint application click on the Edit button from the toolbar and choose the Paste option.
This will take the contents of Clipboard and paste it into your paint application where you can edit and save your screen shot.
