When I press the 'PrtSc' button it captures the screen image, but how do I get this image to be a .jpg or .bmp.

I can open word and copy it in there but am not sure how to save it as an image.

Any ideas??

Thanks.

My really QnD method...

Open MS Paint (under accessories in Programs), I then minimise it, just to have it ready!
....then 'PrtScn'

restore MS Paint, and use 'Edit' -> paste.

Save the job as ....... (whatever!!)

Of course you can use whatever image software you prefer(ie. IrfanView ;)), but paint is QnE...

edit: What version of Word? mine is 2003, and (Edit->Paste) works perfect!!

:D

You shuld think about purchasing a screen capture program like SNAGIT. THis app rocks and will do heaps more.

Heaps of flexibility and editing to boot.

You can also get a piece of freeware called PrintKey 2000. It gives you a lot of flexibility and can save in diffferent formats.
