Sure it is, if you use the Pri Sc key for screenshots.

@ Kathy G, Why can`t you use your keyboard to make screenshots ?

I take it you`re trying to save internet shortcuts ? And if so why ? Just add them to your favorites.

If you`re making shortcuts to programs, just rightclick the icon and pin it to the start menu or the taskbar.

We don't need the whole screen, just a couple of windows which the snipping tool will do.

Gary, the snipping tool link you and Golden posted is broken, at least for me. I did report it.
Broken Link?

It doesn't work on my FF20.0.1, but does in IE9.

I tried both ways, with the s, and without. Didn't make a difference.

Hi Karen
Are you still having problems with our shortcuts. If so i think the problem may well be caused by a Windows 7 Update. Can you recall when this problem first occurred?

I have made Many shortcuts in the past, so this is really frustrating. The thing is...some of my existing shortcuts are reacting the same way!
Hopefully about then mitchell, that time frame would be in the last round of Windows Updates (04-09-2013)

So we can look at doing a system restore here. Need to guide Karen to going into safe mode first, I think just in case her A/V throws us a wobbly!

But we haven't heard from Karen for a couple of days - hope she has not got too confused with the Snipping Tool and given up. I wonder if we could ask Admin to email her for us as she hasn't enough posts for PM to be used. We don't want to leave a confused housewife on the loose

I just installed and am trying to setup my shortcut keys. I noticed that if I don't have a start menu entry for a program, navigating to the folder and finding the .exe, then right-clicking and choosing properties doesn't list a shortcut tab in properties. Why is this, is it a glitch? I'm also...

Win 7 Shortcuts !
I have a quick question about a couple of W7 shortcuts. It seems like the keyboard shortcuts in this OS are a bit more comprehensive than in previous versions, but there's a couple of things that I'd like to do...and haven't been able to figure out yet: 1. Is there any way to deselect a...
