Win 7 ultimate 64bit
alt+tab menu distortion

ill start with a totaly diffrent question than claimd in the title..

How can i take a screendump of my alt+tab interface?

my alt+tab interface is dodgy..

the icons are overlaping eachother and the actual window is more narrow than wide..

i refreshed the graphic drivers and the display driver too. change resolution and mucked about with the setting but its the same on al of them..

any idea on how to troubleshoot..

if i figure out how to take a screenshot i will post it

replies will be appreciated

I'm not sure what could be causing this, but here's how to take a good screenshot of it:
  1. While you are holding down Alt+Tab, press Print Screen on your keyboard (sometimes it's "PrntScrn")
  2. Open Microsoft Paint
  3. Shrink the giant white area down to something really tiny (definitely make it smaller than your alt+tab menu)
  4. Press Ctrl+V to paste it in, or use the menu in Paint to perform the Paste command
  5. Save it as a .PNG. The keyboard shortcut for this is, press Alt+F, V, P. That is, Press Alt+F, then press V and then P
