Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. any one know how to get a computer screen shot. ie print or copy an online page
     
  2. Press the print screen button, then open paint and click paste, then save ..... job jobbed
     
  3. Oh and make sure there is no smut on your task bar.
     
  4. If you paste it into a word document you can crop any smut out of the picture

    Can you not just click on File -> Save page as... (or similar) or just File -> Print?

    msr
     
  6. To avoid any embarrassment - Hold Alt and print screen to just copy the active window ;)

    Atl + Print Screen captures the screen, but closes any open menus, drop down lists, etc. Ctrl + Print Screen captures the open menus, drop down lists, etc.

    When you use Alt + Print screen, etc, it puts a copy of the screen in the clip board. To save a copy of the screenshot open another application (like Word) then use the Paste command (or Ctrl + V) to put the screenshot into the document.

    If you want to do a bit of editing open a program like Microsoft Paint (comes installed with Windows) and you can paste the image into that. Then you can crop the picture, annotate it with text, etc before saving it as a jpg file.

  9. ... bit late, but there is also a handy free application "MWSnap" which can be downloaded HERE - select the area of the desktop you wish to copy (by left clicking and dragging the cursor) and it can be saved to .jpg, .tif, .bmp, .gif or .png - resolution (1/4/8/15/16/24 or 32 bit) can also be selected.
     
  10. That was of use to me as well, thanks.
