Key combo for selective screen capture in Vista?

How do I get screen captures in vista the way I used to get screen captures in XP. Windows button + S let me select an area and copy to the clipboard in XP.

    This is the old, hard way to do it.

    XP Professional's system is integrated with OneNote and autmatically paints the selected area into OneNote. I'm trying to see if a similar OneNote feature is available in Vista.

There is a feature called the snipping tool. In the start menu, go all programs, to accessories, to snipping tool. It is very versatile and much better.

Hi!


You should press CTRL key+ Print Screen key and it will let you capture the screen and then go to paint or any other picture editing software and paste using CTRL+ V or simply selecting the paste option.

Please ask for further clarifications.

Please rate this solution as fixya if found useful.

Thanks

Dual Boot Windows Vista and XP


This tutorial will show you how to install Microsoft Windows Vista in a dual boot option with Microsoft Windows XP. This is great choice when you first migrate to Vista. If there are any problems, you can simply boot into XP and get important work done.
In order to install Windows Vista in a dual-boot configuration along with Windows XP, you need to have either a second partition on your existing hard disk or a second hard disk in your system. You will want to have about 20 GB of free space. You can create a new partition on your existing drive using software such as Partition Magic or Partition Expert (which I recommend), both are available online.
Once you have your second partition or second hard disk operational, just insert your Windows Vista disk and restart the machine. Then you will want to boot from CD (or DVD). You should see a screen letting you know that Windows Vista is loading.

The default settings are set for English, click next to continue.
dual-boot-windows-xp-and-vista-2.jpg
Now select the Install Now button .
dual-boot-windows-xp-and-vista-3.jpg
Now you will need to enter your Microsoft Windows Vista serial number. By default Windows Vista will activate you copy after installation, you can unselect this option is you wish. I recommend un-checking the box, simply because Microsoft may lock your serial key if it is activated too many times, this could happen if you are experimenting and have to reinstall Vista, or if you decide to install Vista by itself later on.

At this point in the installation, you’re prompted to type in your product key for activation.
If you decide to disable the automatic activation routine, you will receive a warning. Click yes to continue.

If you didn’t enter a serial key, the setup will prompt you for the version of Microsoft Windows Vista that you are using. Select the correct version for your license.

Now you must agree to Microsoft’s Terms. Of course they are completely absurd, but you have now choice.

On the Which Type Of Installation Do You Want Page click the Custom (advanced) button.
dual-boot-windows-xp-and-vista-8.jpg
On the Where Do You Want To Install Windows? Select your second partition or second hard drive.

Once the select a partition or disk and click Next, the rest of the installation will continue as it normally would. As such, I won’t follow the installation procedure any further in this article.
Once the installation is complete, you’ll see the Windows Boot Manager screen, you can now select which operating system you will boot into. Select Microsoft Windows Vista

You can change the boot manager settings if you would like, if not then you can stop reading. Go to Control Panel, System, Advance System Setting link in the Tasks pane and confirm though the UAC prompt. When you see the System Properties dialog box, click Settings in the Startup and Recovery panel. You’ll then see the Startup and Recovery dialog box.

In the System Startup pane, you can change the settings.

What keys do I hit to email whats on my screen?


Screen capture using F12 with this free software:
http://download.cnet.com/Screen-Copy/3000-2094_4-10039293.html

This creates a TIFF file by default, but an extra click creates a JPEG file.

Store your screen capture as a file or copy it to the MSWindows desktop clipboard. Then to use your screen capture, paste it into your email from the MSWindows desktop clipboard, or pick up the stored file as an email attachment.

The only drawback is that you have to clean up afterwards by deleting your screen capture JPEG file(s) - unless you just sent your image to/from the clipboard.

How can I copy the standby screen to Word Document, then probably edit it to paint?


I am not sure what exactly you mean when you say "Standby screen", if you mean the screen saver, then go to >display settings, > Screen Saver > then click Preview and while the preview is running, press "Print Screen" key on the keyboard, the image will be copied onto the clipboard, now close the display settings and paste it into the word document/paint.
We call this as "Screen Shot", you can also do the same with the desktop, suppose when you want to capture the image of your desktop, just press "print screen" key on the keyboard and paste it into the paint or other photo editing software and save it. Anything that you can see on the desktop/display of your monitor while the computer is running can be captured in the same way.
Good luck.
Thanks for using FixYa.
