Since I installed Win98 I cannot perform a print screen from my dos program running under Windows. I have prtscrn unchecked in the properties, misc area. Does anyone know how I can get this function back?

You will need to go online and download a progam called print key from the net. Once you install it you will be able to use your print screen key again. This problem also happens in Win95.

I was able to do it with Win 95. It is only since Win98 that I can't do it.
