I did "print screen" and saved the image onto a word doc.

How do I post it here to share?

I upload to my photobucket account (it's a free account that host your pictures). Once you have them loaded at the site you can copy/paste the URL link from the site to this site.

I'm sure there are other methods. Thats the only one I've used.

If you have firefox and photobucket you can follow this article to save some time (i've never used it):

if u have windows 7 , open your pic
go to start menu / all programs / accessories select sniping tool

when it starts hold your mouse button down and drag it around what you want to capture
then hit the little diskette symbol and name and save as a jpg file voila ;-)

Just enlarge the screen (assuming you don't want your desktop to show) and hit the print screen button, print screen (PRTSC or PRTSCN on some keyboards). . Then go to word doc and hit ctrl + v (or paste however you are use to).

It depends on your keyboard. If your print screen button doesn't work on it's on then you might have a "fn" button. Hold down the fn button and hit print screen. Then do everything else etc etc.

If neither method works for you then, post what type of computer/keyboard you are on.

Some keyboards use other combinations (FN+INSERT) to take a screen capture.

I think she's got the screenie but doesn't know how to post it.

Diane, when you're making a new post, underneath where you're typing is a button labelled "Manage Attachments" - click on it and it will open a window to browse and upload your graphic - once it's uploaded you click the button "Insert Inline"

If I remember right, Silk had a really good "how to" a year or two ago. There have been morethan a few how to's in the past few years here. Try search, you will find a couple different ways and can pick the one that is easiest for you. :)

you're so wacky. :p

I used to host my screenies on my own server and just link to them but I find it's just easier to attach them here - it's one less step and I'm lazy like that.

If you hold the right ALT key whilst you press PrtSc it will only take a snap of the active window in full screen. so no desktop will show!;)

After that upload the pic to photobucket and insert the [IMG ] code into your post.

If you press printscreen and then open paint and select paste from the edit menu at the top it will paste what it has captured in to paint. Then select 'save as' and change it to a JPG intead of a BMP. Then upload the JPG file to photobucket and paste the [IMG ] code in to your post!:thumbsup:


:thumbsup::D

Think my post are wacky, just imagine what my wife puts up with lol.


Not to derail but I noticed some threads like this one you can't thank a post. It's a WTG instead. Is there a way to determine what type of thread it will be? Like if you want it to be a "thank" thread or "WTG" type thread.

I can get to that step in "Manage Attachments".......but then get an error message that its too big. I really appreciate everyone trying to help, but I am really stupid in this regard.

I did the print screen when I got the win before I lost the screen in the game. I then pasted it into a word document. I can look at it all day -- but for the life of me, even after reading all the advice and related threads can't get it from word doc to showing up here in a post.

Open up the word doc
Press Print screen again
press ctrl+C
Open Paint (in accessories)
press ctrl+V
go file - save as (name it) make sure you save as a JPEG file
This should go to your pictures folder or my documents folder
when you try to do your attachment
choose browse
check my pics or my docs for the name of the file you just copied into paint

WTG Kesch, I think you have nailed it for Diane. Good Job!!! Even I understood that, and that surprises me and anyone else who knows me, because when it comes to computer stuff I am soooo not smart. :oops:

LOL jod, you are more smart than you give yourself credit.

I actually had to do it several ways to come up with the easiest LOL
It's a good thing I have a big harddrive cause I do some pretty strange things sometimes and then I forget to undo them LOL
My sons says to me the other day..."Mom, you do realize, you have a 300gig harddrive and you only have 2 gig available??? WTF do you have on this????" OOps, spent a few hours cleaning up the HD, now I have 158 gig available LMAO
