Hi, not to sure what you mean by "a box around it" but try pressing Prt Scm button, open Paint, click on paste & you should have your copy.

Welcome mjones3,

Have you looked at using the Snipping tool in Windows 7 to capture the screen you want ?

Hello Jones, and welcome to Seven Forums.

On some laptops you may need to press the FN key + Print Screen key for it to work for full screen screenshot, and ALT + FN + Print Screen to capture a screenshot of the active window.

Hope this helps,
