If you are referring in taking screenshots in your screen, I recommend AceThinker Free Screen Grabber Online. This is an online screenshot app where you can take screenhots easily. Simply go to its website and click the "start" button. This tool also allows you to edit your captured image instantly. I hope this will help you. You can get this app at: https://acethinker.com/grab-screen

I can’t believe this is even a question with three answers, none of which say “snipping tool”. It’s a built in feature of windows builds for as long as I remember, and it works great. Go to your start menu search for snipping tool and try it out.

If you just want to capture a still image of what is on your computer screen, you can use a free image editing program like IRFANVIEW.
You can download this free program at the following link:

http://download.cnet.com/IrfanView/?tag=mncol;1


Just click on the underlined text above to get to the download page and then click on the green DOWNLOAD NOW button in the upper left hand corner.
Then follow the onscreen instructions to install this program on your computer.
Once the IRFANVIEW program is installed, start it up and click on the OPTIONS menu at the top of the screen.
Scroll down and select the CAPTURE/SCREENSHOT option.
For CAPTURE AREA, select the #5 option - CUSTOM RECTANGLE / REGION CAPTURE.
Now just click on the START button at the bottom of that screen.
This will start your screen capture. First place the mouse arrow in one corner of the screen image you wish to capture. Now just hold down your left mouse button and move the pointer to create a rectangular capture area around that image.
When you have enclosed the area of the screen image you wish to capture just click the left mouse button once. This will capture that area as an image which is now ready to save as a separate file.
Now click on the FILE option at the top of the screen and scroll down to the SAVE AS option in that list.
Choose a file name for the captured image and a location on your computer to save that file.
That's it. You have just captured and saved a screenshot image which you can open with any image viewing software. Just repeat the process to capture additional screen images.
Thank you for using FIXYA.
Good luck and take care.
Joe.

How do I cut an image from the internet?

There are several ways to capture images from the internet.

In your browser, right click on an image and select Save Image As...
or Copy Image and then paste into your graphics application.
Some web pages use programming to prevent copying images and the right click and copy/save won't work easily. There are ways around it, but you have to start hacking the copy protection code.

Do a screen or window capture:
On a Windows PC, look for a Print Scr (Print Screen) key on your keyboard.
Press that key and the whole screen will copied to the "clipboard" and can be pasted into another application. You may need to use another key in combination with Print Scr. I have to press the Fn key + Print Scr on my keyboard. Don't actually type the "+".
Also, the Alt key + Print Scr will capture only the current window, not the whole screen.

There are many screen capture programs out there as well. IrFanView is an excellent free graphics tool with a screen capture feature.

I have a RCA VR5320R digital voice recorder. My voice recordings are stored on the recorder, under folder "A," but when I attach the recorder to my computer, eventhough the device shows up under...

Your best bet is to play the recordings through the headphone connector to a pc audio line-in connector and capture the audio using something like Audacity. Then output them using audacity to mp3 to play on your mp3 player.

I just replace my printer cartridges and i trie to print off the internet. it did not print the text, but did print the ads on the side. so, i copy/pasted to word and then tried to print and it only...

Found this on the Web Site. If you find helpful, pls rate me. For Epson, You must use Genunie Ink Cartridges. A MUST........

You may be copying something that is "proprietary" . The owner may have it copyright . Owner who can exercise control over what users can do with the software, in contrast to public domain.

Found this on the Web Site, if you would like to copy using the print screen key.

http://www.seoconsultants.com/windows/print-screen/
The key may appear differently depending on the manufacturer of your Windows keyboard. The standard position would be at the upper right hand corner of your keyboard and may appear within this sequence of keys...
The sole function of this key is to take a snapshot or picture of your computer screen and copy it to the clipboard (the clipboard is an invisible holding area for content that is copied). Its the same thing as if you copied something from a document and it is now on your clipboard waiting to be pasted in its final destination. Its that simple. As quoted by Webopedia...
Often abbreviated Prt Scr, the Print Screen key is a useful key supported on most PCs. In DOS, pressing the Print Screen key causes the computer to send whatever images and text are currently on the display screen to the printer. Some graphics programs and Windows, use the Print Screen key to obtain Screen Captures.
Now, how do you get to see those Screen Captures or maybe even send them to someone? The quickest and most effective method is to have a graphics editing program handy. If that is not an option, you can open your favorite word processing program and create a new document. Position your cursor at the beginning of the document or wherever you want the screenshot to appear.
Using your keyboard, press Ctrl + V which will Paste the screenshot in your open document. Now you can Save (Ctrl + S) the document to wherever you wish, make sure to name it appropriately so you can easily find it.
You can now send this file to anyone via email, use it in a presentation, create your own little book of screenshots showing how to perform a specific task, etc. The possibilities are endless.
We use the Windows Print Screen Key regularly. You probably will too once you get the hang of it!

Thanks and Good Luck.

Restart your computer and before the appearance of the boot screen hit F8 to get the booting option list. From the list select Safe Mode in order to start your computer in Safe Mode.
Once the computer has booted in Safe Mode go to Start > Run and type c:Documents and SettingsAll UsersApplication DataWindows Genuine Advantage (where C: is usually the system drive).
Right click the DATA folder and choose Properties. Now go to the security tab and in the Group or user names section click on Users. In the permission for user section make sure you check all the check boxes under the Allow column: Read & Execute, List Folder Contents and Read. Click OK and then restart the computer.
