HOW TO CAPTURE A SCREEN SHOT IN
WINDOWS XP?


Want to capture an image in your window screen? There are
many ways in capturing images in your screen without
installing any software (or just using programs included in
your OS version)

When you‟re using Windows XP:

  Locate “Alt” and “Print Screen” in your keyboard. Alt is
  beside the “tab” bar and there are two “Alt” buttons
  beside the two “Windows” button. The “Print Screen”
  button is located beside “Scroll Lock” and above “Insert”
  button.

  Be ready for capturing a screen shot:

  1. In your main screen press “Print Screen” button. The
     window screen is already captured though there won‟t
     appear any notifications
  2. Paste the image in a picture editor program (Microsoft
     Office or Paint) by using your mouse or keyboard
     shortcut (hold “Ctrl” + “V”)

  For capturing just a window screen, hold the “Alt”
  together with “Print Screen” and your window screen is
  captured. Repeat Step 2
WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CAPTURING A
WINDOW SCREEN SHOT AND A SCREEN SHOT?

From the word „window shot‟ it means the active window
will only be captured (no toolbar, no clock, and inactive
windows)

                 SEE THE DIFFERENCE


                                       This is a screen shot
                                       .Notice that there is
                                       a toolbar




                                       This is a window
                                       screen shot
STEPS HOW TO EDIT THE CAPTURED IMAGE:


 1. After pasting the image in a picture editor like
    Microsoft, look for “crop” icon in the “picture toolbar”

 2. Select the “crop” icon and drag your mouse arrow to
    the trimming area and choose the best fit




                                   It will look like this
                                   after you have edited
                                   the image
3. Save the image, and you‟re ready to go! If you‟re
   using the Paint program just click File, Save and
   rename your picture. It‟ll be automatically saved
   in the “My Pictures” folder.
