Capturing Windows 7 Password Popup

Can someone assist me with capturing the Windows 7 password reminder that pops up in the bottom right corner of the screen? I need to incorporate into a manual and I can not seem to capture (tried Snagit and Snipping tool). If you elect to change password from the popup reminder, I need that screen as well.

Also need screencapture of CTRL+ALT+DELETE screen for changing password and the screens that follow.

Thank you!

Hello DLong,

I usually press the Print Screen key to capture something like that, then paste (CTRL + V) it in Paint and crop it.

Screenshot with Paint

For the screenshots outside of Windows like the CTRL+ALT+DELETE screen, I run a virtual machine (VM) to take a screenshot of it in the VM.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Capturing Windows 7 Password Popup

Unfortunately when I press Print Screen the message disappears. Also, on the CTRL+ALT+DELETE screen, Print Screen doesn't work. Not sure if I have access to create a virtual machine - checking with IT Dept. to find out. Any other suggestions?

Your welcome. Clicking on the "virtual machine" link above will take you to a tutorial that will show you how to create a virtual machine using Windows Virtual PC if you are allowed to.
