There is no magic wand.

Here is detailed write-up.

HOW TO POST A SNAPSHOT OF DISK MANAGEMENT DISPLAY
Run disk management:
WIN | type DISKMGMT.MSC | ENTER
WIN
is the key with the wavy flag.

Maximize the output of Disk Management:
ALT-Spacebar key combo (this pops up a menu) followed by X key (selects Maximize) |
Drag the field separators (such as between Status and Capacity) to show entire field. This is very important, otherwise, needed info is not visible.

Make a snapshot:
WIN | type SNIPPING | ENTER | New
Drag the cursor around the area you want to snip.
File | Save as | select save location and name | Save

Post the snapshot:
Upload a File or Screenshot in Seven Forums

THE WIN KEY for example IS NOT FUNCTIONAL in anything I have access to, which includes the bios boot screens, the advanced features menu (all paths of which lead to the next area) the startup restore console so that in turn gives me commad promt access.


and whats the command line tool you speek of snipping tool? hmmm

Instead of hitting the Win key:
Left click on the Start Orb (that's the round ball at the fall left of the bottom of the Win 7 screen).

If I could open the start menu, load any win64/32 or even 16-bit app , that would mean i was in any mode of windows, beit safe mode or any bone, i would literally need dry pants, i have seen nothig but black and whit and that annoyyng little system beep for like 2 1/2 days straight oh and the blue bar of repairing..............................falure or sucess, same results (ha, the computer is the laugh generator here guys)

Mike


My point is clearly i can not touch windows enviroment

that means i cant "touch the orb", type it in start search, run "c:\windows\...etc" it, navigate explorer to the exe file, or anything a person who has seen windows can do

i just have letters which can combine to form words/commands but capturing a prompt w/o win is probibly possible but not anything i know of....

Karl... NO or why would i be here?


i actually though after making that clear and leaving no questions unanswerd above, my sarcasm was crystal clear, it cant be that bad, or have i lost my sarcastic mojo?

I want being mean just trying to show you i cant do the things you are saying to do

Rubyrubyroo you comments I understand are out of frustration, however they are also the type which are easily passed over by the knowledgeable people here at SF.
