you mean just a picture of telnet up and running?

hit the ctrl + print screen, then open word and use the paste special feature, it will drop the picture right in, ready to be sized and manipulated however you choose.

yes, it does not matter if the telnet screen is active or not, it will make an image of everything that is visable on your monitor.

then, when you paste special, i find using just the bitmap option be easiest (you'll see), or try both options, device independent bitmap and regular bitmap, see which you like better.

i am going to post as an answer if you still need more info, please reject and ask.,

thanks,

You can do it with capture in Paint Shop Pro.  There are some shareware utilities that will do it also.

Here are a couple of URLs.

If you don't find anything you like, go to your favorite software site and search for "print screen" or "screen capture".

nfroio is correct on this one.  It's just ALT and print screen, not ctrl. Very easy way to do it.

Hi

I found that i could embed the screen by pressing just print screen and then in adobe photoshop click on paste and the image gets stored.

We may have different keyboards.  Oh well problem solved.  This is a pretty cool feature, I find I use it quite a bit.

yeah, that works too, but your question specifically stated that you wanted to drop the pic into Word, and thats what i told you how to do, if you wanted to keep a file of the pic, you should have asked that......

Open your screen which you want to capture. Try to hit printscreen button and on the word just paste it. (no need paste special)

Hit print screen and paste to the word document.  the other way would be to use special screen capture software like Capture Professional.  
The advantage with screen capture software is that, you can capture specified area of the screen.
