Hi yunikon,

Keep the window on top ... press alt+print screen ... paste in MS paint

ctrl+print screen will get  a screen shot of whole desktop while alt print screen gets only the active window

Thanks, I get no response when I press alt+print screen or ctrl+print screen.  Print Screen Key is labeled   'Print Screen SysRq'.

Clicked edit and there are  3 choices, undo, select all and 'paste from....'.   Paste option is grayed out. Select all just leaves a rectangular white screen.  Paste from is leading me to a file.  Selected the Visual C++  project folder and get debug folder.  Can't move from there.  First time using mspaint.
