Windows 8.1 Pro RTM x64

Failing that, you might have to resort to capturing a screenshot with the aid of a digital camera.

You might want to try Jing. You can program it to a Function key (I chose F9). When you hit the F-Key, you can take a full or partial screen shot. They are a little fuzzy about registration, but that has no consequences. I use it since a long time on several system and never had a problem

Hi when I have used the control prnscr option you can cut and paste , but when applying to a new sheet and viewing it, it looks so small in the top left corner. Would it be possible to be able to send an image which is the same size when attached. Please let me know your preferred method.

Hello Scorpio,

The forum software will display the attached image smaller so it will not overtake the thread, but you can click on an attached image in a post to view it at full size. :)

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

A small comment about saving the file after capturing. It should not be recommended to save to jpeg, as it's a poor algorithm for screenshots (it creates visible distortion and artifacts all over the image). Png is a much better one for this (because it's lossless), and natively supported by paint on Win7. Jpeg is better for photography though.
