Ever wanted to take a snapshot of your screen? Well, hit the ‘Print Scrn’ key and a bitmap will be placed onto your clipboard. You know the clipboard – it’s that mysterious Microsoft netherworld where things go temporarily when you hit Edit | Copy or Edit | Cut.
Open up your favorite image editor, and then Edit | Paste it as a new image, and edit to your heart’s content. Then save it (or do whatever you want to do with it).
You probably already knew all that, right? … But did you also know that if you pushed ‘Alt’ and ‘PrintScrn’ that it would capture only the active window? Ha ha!
