It should be the same for Vista and XP:

Start-> Control Panel-> Printers and Faxes

There should be a check mark beside your default printer. If not, Right click the printer you want to use, and 'Set As Default Printer'.

Hope this helps!

On previoius Dell products ALT-PRNT SCREEN used to capture the active window this does not seem to be an option on the E4310. How do I capture an active window?


Check if you have to press the fn (function) key on your laptop before pressing Print Screen, you can tell if they are both the same blue color.

When you press ALT+Print Screen, you only capture the active window, when you click print screen you capture the entire screen. Then you will have to press CTRL+V on your keyboard to paste into paint. If you have windows Vista, you can capture screen shots much more easily using the Snipping Tool included with Vista.


Here's a How to guide to refresh: (Ref: http://graphicssoft.about.com/cs/general/ht/winscreenshot.htm )
  1. Press the Print Screen key on your keyboard. It may be labeled [PrtScn].
  2. Open an image editing program, such as Microsoft Paint.
  3. Go to the Edit menu and choose Paste.
  4. If prompted to enlarge the image, choose Yes.
  5. Optional: Use your image editor's crop tool to crop out unnecessary portions of the screen shot.
  6. Go to the File Menu and choose Save As.
  7. Navigate to the folder where you want to save the image.
  8. Type a file name for the image.
  9. Select a file type.
  10. Click the Save button.
Tips:
  1. Hold the Alt key down while pressing Print Screen to capture only the active window.
  2. Generally the GIF format works best when saving screen shots of application windows. The JPEG format usually makes screen shots (especially those with text) blurry, blotchy and discolored.
  3. See related resources below for more screen shot tips and listings of screen capture software that offers many more options for capturing screens and portions of screens on Windows and Macintosh computers.
  4. The Windows "clipboard" is a term used to describe the temporary storage space in memory where an item is placed when you copy or cut. When you paste, the item is transferred to the program you're working in. If you copy something else, the old item is replaced with the new. You can't manipulate the clipboard directly; it's only used for copy and paste operations.
Good Luck

What is the Print Screen key on my keyboad used for?


If you used computers back in the 80's (DOS days) you probably remember using the Print Screen key on your keyboard to print a copy of whatever was on the monitor screen at that time on your printer. It wasn't used that much because back in those days it took forever for a dot matrix printer to print out the entire monitor screen. However, it came in handy once and awhile.<br />Today, many people just glance at the Print Screen key (and wonder what it's there for), and some hit the key and when nothing happens they just forget about it.<br />Well, Microsoft didn't forget about it at all. They turned it into a "Snapshot key" which, as that term implies, takes a snapshot of the monitor screen. <br />Microsoft doesn't really highlight the fact that a user, after taking a snapshot of the screen, can easily save and/or print that snapshot using paint.<br />After taking the snapshot, in Windows XP simply click on Start, All Programs, Accessories and Paint. Then click on Edit followed by Paste and Voila! There's your screen snapshot in living color staring you in the face! This same capability exists in other versions of Windows, however the key-stroke sequence differs.<br />Now you can click on File, Save As, and save it with a .jpg/tif extension (etc.) and/or send it to your printer using File, Print.<br /><br />Perhaps Microsoft tried to get the keyboard manufacturers to change the name of the key from Print Screen to Snapshot, but I guess we will be stuck with the keyboad Print Screen label forever.<br /><br />Anyway, the Print Screen key is a much more functional tool under Windows than it ever was

Print screen key on computer.


On a windows computer by hitting print screen you are only copying an image of your computer screen to your clipboard you then have to paste it into an imaging program and save it. For example ... hit the print screen button on your keyboard -> go to start -> programs -> accessories -> paint -> then click the edit menu and click paste you should then see the screen shot of you computer in the paint window you then can go to file -> save and save the image somewhere on your computer.

PRINTING PROBLEMS


Maybe I can help;
I'll assume you have a windows operating system.
There are two ways to print, one is hitting the print icon wherever that may be in the current program and the second is to use the longer method of going to: file/print.. which takes to you to the print setup box.
This may be where you need to set the print properties for this particular document.
The first method uses whatever your default printing setup is.. such as which printer, portrait mode,
draft or best quality....etc.

If you always use the same print setup you can set this in; start/settings/control panel/printers/
Your default printer will have a check next to it.
Hope this helps
