As an alternative to using the Alt key & Print Screen/PrtScn Key to capture a screen shot, you can also use the Windows Snipping Tool.  It’s a built-in feature of Windows 7. To use the tool – launch it by clicking Start, All Programs, Accessories, and Snipping ToolWhen it opens – your screen will go pale whitish and you will see a crosshair tool. Then simply put your cross-hair where you want to start and then left- click/drag the tool over anything you want to snip (cut out) – then release. It’s similar to the cropping tool in photo-editing software. You can snip error messages, text from the web or documents, pictures, etc. There are also tools that cut in different shapes. Once your snip is captured, you will get a pop-up window that gives you the option to copy the snip and send it via email or copy and paste it to a word document, email, etc. It’s a very handy tool to have!
