This may seem like a somewhat unneeded guide, but i'm sure it can help people who aren't all that tech savvy.


Taking screen shots:
Taking a screen shot is one of the easiest things that you can do on a computer. If you look at the top right of your keyboard, you will noticed 3 buttons sitting beside the F12 key.

The one on the left should say print screen on it.

Pictures Guide Windows-xp-print-screen2

You may think that when you press this, your printer prints a picture of your screen, but that is not true. What happens is your current computer screen (minus the mouse pointer) is captured and put onto the clip board (the thing that is pasted when you press ctrl + v).

The easiest way to change this into a useable image is to open Microsoft Paint.

Start Button > All Programs > Accessories > Paint

This window should pop up:
Pictures Guide Paintscreen

Once this window is open, you can press Ctrl + V, or go to Edit > Paste, and your screen will be in the window.

You can now crop out what ever parts you don't want in the picture by pressing the select tool:

Pictures Guide Ms812492.penink03(en-us,MSDN.10)

Once you have taken out what ever you don't want, click 1 point with the select tool, then go down to the bottom right corner of the picture, and drag the little blue dot until it is the same size as the picture.

Once you have done this, go to File > Save as and save the picture into where ever you want to.

Uploading the picture and posting it on the forums:

Please be paitient, this part isn't done yet.
