I learned something big here.

Some folks post impressive images (screen shots). For me, having the image helps LOTS when getting instructions / info. I'm a better visual learner.

I asked in another forum [ "Follower User" - what does it mean? ]if there is a trick to get a screen shot? Got a lot of great answers .. and I DID IT! yahoo

And more than one way to skin a cat, as they say.

Hoping those who responded with move their posts here. (I'm not able to do it without them all coming from me.)

Peggy, I don’ t believe us ‘bolters can move our post. I do believe that is a function of the moderators.

Phil,

I could not do it. I even had to "copy and paste" from the old one.

My options as a Moderator / Admin, was to move the whole thread or merge the two. I wanted the original one to stay. Good info there, too.

Okay ... doing it the hard way. At least it's in once place.


This tip is from klhansen
The trick to taking a screen shot is to use "print screen" then put that in Paint (comes with Windows) and crop out the stuff you don't want.
Alternately, Firefox has a "Take Screenshot" option by right clicking on the screen, then moving the box to what you want and click on Copy. Don't know if other browsers offer that feature.



From Phak1
You can do the same thing with an iPad. Take a screen shot which stores it in Photos, then crop out what you don’t want in the iPad Photo editor.


From baldeagle (a/k/a Stovebolt Geek / Paul Schmehl)
Windows Key + PrtScn: Windows 10 will take a screenshot and save it as a PNG file in the default Pictures folder in File Explorer.
Alt + PrtScn: This is a great option if you just want to take a shot of an individual window on your screen.

Note: Alt + PrtScn will only copy your shot to the Clipboard so you can paste it into a document or other image editor like Microsoft Paint. It doesn’t create a backup copy in the Pictures folder.

While this isn’t a keyboard shortcut, you might want to take a shot of a specific region of your screen. To do that, enter the Snipping Tool (an often-forgotten tool included since Vista and Windows 7).

To access it, hit the Windows Key and type: snipping tool and select the results from the top. Then select New from the menu and drag the cursor over the area of the screen you want to capture. The captured screenshot will appear in the full Snipping Tool program. It has basic editing tools and is a good option for a quick shot if you need one.


If anyone has anything else to add, feel free to post. Even questions.

THIS IS WONDERFUL ... yahoo

I did the Firefox "Take Screen Shot." I only noticed that drop down when I right click that it was not a Open Link in New Window. Rarely do I use Save Page when on a website. So, this is great. So many uses for me.

I did use the option of Print Screen but had to open up PhotoShop (time consuming). I tried Paint a few times but I need to learn those tools a letter better. Even the PhotoShop is different than when I was using a lot.

I could not "paste" it here (which makes sense ... the image posting thing, right??) BUT, I could paste in an email. Paul will be very pleased. I've been sending him FULL print screen shots when showing him stuff.

So now .....

YaHOOO. SHAzamm.

Can't wait to blast John with a few screen shots now!! eeeek

New question about this. Where do you put your pictures then? With all your others? I have to figure out what's the most convenient and a spot where they will stay.

We have a Bolt Bucket (Photobucket), the server itself, or find another spot just for such stuff. OR a second Photobucket account for this stuff. We have so much stuff on Photobucket we are WAY OVER the limit and need to upgrade to amount. Requires some extra thinking ...
