Running Small Business Server 2008 on HP ML350 G5 server.  I need to capture a screen image.  I tried pressing print screen and pasting to an rtf file, that does not work.  I guess I need something like the Snippett tool found in Windows 7.
My question:  What steps would you take to capture a screen image on a server running Small Business Server 2008 ?

Have you tried ALT + PRT SCRN then running paint and pasting into there, then saving the file?

Don't know that snipping tool isn't available in SBS (never looked for it that I remember).

But a simple solution: RDP into the SBS server and then use the Win7 Snipping tool.

Or install a free utility like Gadwin Print Screen.

Or just use the PrintScreen key and pasting into Paint. (Alt should capture the active Window, PrintScreen by itself captures the entire screen).
