I see some of you people around the forum are getting to post snaps shots of your screen (error and messages). I have looked for some software that would allow me to do this. But, with out any luck I couldn't find it.

Does anyone know what it is called or a good one to use?

You shouldnt need a program, you can just use the "Print Screen" function

From Wikipedia

In Microsoft Windows a screenshot of the entire monitor, complete with taskbar, can be copied to the system clipboard by pressing the Print screen key. Alternatively, pressing Alt + Print screen will copy just the active window to the clipboard. One can then paste the clipboard into a program such as MS Paint or Paint.NET to save it as an image file (for posting online, for instance), or paste it directly into a document. If saving as an image file, it is best to use a format which uses lossless compression (e.g. PNG) (or no compression, e.g. BMP). Use a format which supports 24-bit color if the screenshot contains many colors.

No problem! Let me know if you run into any issues.

A little tip...if you press Print Screen, you will need to paste it into something (Microsfot Paint works great)

There are many applications available to do what you want. I like WinSnap...very easy to use and very nice results.

Isn't there a size consideration if posting it in here, file size that is.

I figured that out... Finally!!! It took me a little bit to find out what to do after hitting the print screen button. But I did it and it works. Thanks
