Ibm thinkpad y42

You will find under window graphic controls you can no longer Print screen like when we used the LPT-1 ports.
so a work around is to copy and paste to word, word pad, publisher, almost anything that has a cursor blinking.

any way here goes, select (highlight) the area you want to print and if you want the whole page under edit click on select all....then put you arrow (cursor) on the blue part, right click and choose copy.
then open word, word pad and right click again and choose paste. then send that page to the ole printer...and viola...you done did dodit....
Hope this works for you my friend, good luck, please leave rating. thank you kindly
