I found a couple issues with my PC here in the last few minutes too.
I don't think it's your PC as mine still doesn't work either. It's not a big deal though so.......whenever.

Agreed no biggie.

I was having other issues besides this. Mainly PC freezes. Lot's of them, and bad enough to warranted hitting the reset button on the front of the tower.

I love this PC (custom built about a year ago), but Winblows is getting on my nerves.

It's a big deal to us, now that jeep'n season is winding down we've got allot of stuff planned for winter.

Couple things are to get more smilies and make is so you can customize your top 15 smilies.

Poorboy it's not you. Heck can you show me how to do screenshots?

Instructions for Screenshots:

If you want the entire screen, Press the Printscreen key.


If you want just the tab you are looking at, then press both Alt and Print screen.


That saves the image the windows clipboard. You have two options from here.

1) Paste it onto a Word document, which then you can use the screenshot as part of your document.

or

2) Open up Paint or similar program. Then paste and save it under the title you want as a .BMP image.

I had to do a lot training manuals for my students at work. That knowledge came in handy.....

Sweet it works! Thank you!

I edited the instructions to show examples of what I meant with all that gibberish....

There's more winblows tricks that I know, but I use that the most. In the last year I completely revamped my position at work. I am in charge of the Staff aide program. The students I oversee are staff's helpers. Anything making copies, to changing light bulbs. Their main duty is the Movie rental office, which the last person in my position failed miserably at running........

I had to make training manuals that were written in plain english so my students could follow along.

Isn't that Ctrl- Prtsc?....Also if you use the paint program save the picture as a JPG as it will be much smaller.....
OK that's everything I think I know about computers.

Winblows 98 and earlier I think was ctrl+print screen.

XP and newer it's just print screen or Alt+print screen.
