ok...this is what happens...I can't seem to capture it..(blank page), but this is what it says in the box..."This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Please install a program or, it one is already installed, create an association in the Default Programs Control Panel." Whe I get rid of That box, another shows up that says "Unable to open this Internet Shortcut. The protocol "http" does not have a registered program".

Whaat to do?

That's the spirit!

This is what mine looks like, I used stellarium.exe just as an example:

You said earlier:

I don't know how to capture an image with this keyboard...
Maybe we can help with that, but your System Specs are incomplete:
  • What type of machine are you using, did it come with a keyboard? Make/Model
  • Mouse or touchpad?
  • What is it about that you find difficult capturing an image?
If you're having problems with Golden's Snipping tool tutorial so was I (I'll have to report that), see if this helps: Use Snipping Tool to capture screen shots
The other link about uploading and posting's seems okay.

Hold off on my last post for now, its out of sequence.

Check something for us, go to: Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Default Programs\Set Associations , wait for the page to load, then scroll down to the bottom to Protocols, what do you see, what's associated with HTTP/HTTPS, anything?

Follow the tutorial Golden linked for you earlier: Screenshots and Files - Upload and Post in Seven Forums
Start with Here's How Step #2

It will seem tedious at first because of doing it for the first time, but it will become easier after a while.

Maybe it would help if you printed out the tutorial?
That would be at the top of the tutorial under Tutorial Tools\Printable Version.
You won't have the pictures, but all the steps are there.

No HTTP's? That's probably the problem right there, but I'm unsure of which way to proceed from here.

You could use this: Default Programs - Set a Program's Default Associations to check if there is a way to add those HTTP's

Check to see what's there first, skip step #4 go to 5, and what do you see in comparison to the first snip after step5, is yours the same, are any unchecked? Check them and OK your way out.

Now, check your associations like you did the last time, do you see the HTTP's now?

If you don't, restart your machine, check again, if they are now there try to recreate your shortcut.

I don't understand Kathy, a keyboard isn't used to capture a snip or screenshot.

To use the snipping tool: How to Use the Snipping Tool in Vista

To see the "paperclip icon" you have to use the big button in the upper left, not quick reply.
