Righthandclick = no copy sign
mspaint.exe = can't print screen

Ok, without loading a third party program, am I reduced to actually typing it out or using a pen and paper?

I'm sorry, but that does not make much sense. What are you trying to copy?

sorry gerryf, as in tital devmgmt.msc, it is the device manager which I want to copy. just making a canned for when the victim says "something not working" and I reply "any yellow thingies in the devmgmt.msc"

wanabe 1, thanks, it really is good(see below), rave rave

New question: any way to copy details of devmgmt.msc into text without downloading a third party program to do so, since as I said in my first post, righthandclick'copy, and select all, don't work here.

PS Sorry if my English is a bit wonkey donkey here.

You won't be able to copy text from those windows...

With WinSnap, you can capture regions of any part of any window so you can get pretty precise.

Thks, thought as much but wanted to ask the experts, sigh. oh and does msinfo32 from runcommand work on XPhome too, but I think its too tech to ask the victim, whops, the human about copying from there.

why not just hit ALT + PrtScn? Then go to MSPAINT, hit Ctrl + V

That will paste an image of the active window into MSPAINT,,,,then save that.

Great, thanks all of you then, I think we have found the source of the problem then, something that sits between the keyboard and the back of the chair I believe.
