I'm doing a reserach of the system fonts used on first personal computers. I'm trying to find out the image of ms-dos operating system font, his name(terminal, i'm not sure that that name is correct) and the name of the author.
i was trying to get screenshot when i'm in the fullscreen mode, but it doesn't work. i'd like the precisze image, so i can analyse the combinations of pixles, that form charachter.

Just to make it a little clearer.
Are you wanting to be able to take a screen shot of the full screen mode when in DOS?

You have two options.
Firstly open a DOS window. <RUN> <CMD> or <COMMAND> (depending on your OS)

Option 1.  Within the DOS window, click on the left top corner and select "Edit - mark". Now you can select a needed part of the screen with your mouse and select "Edit - Copy". The screenshot is in the clipboard and you may insert it into any graphical program. Or insert the text into an application like Word fro example.

Option 2.  Use a Screen Capture application to capture the DOS window and save it as an image. e.g. JPEG, TIF, PNG, GIF or BMP. Below is a link to a Shareware application that I have used and found it to be quite useful.

Simply open a DOS window. Open Any Screen Capture. Select <CAPTURE> <CURRENT WINDOW> <SAVE AS>.

Hope that helps.
