Go to Start> All Programs> Accessories> Paint.

Don't expect much. Paint is a pretty weak graphics program. I use adobe photoshop, which is overkill for most home users, but if you like I can ask around about a decent freeware program.

The only reason I even need it is so I can take a screen shot for Yahoo messenger to show them exactly the problem I`m having even though my verbal explanation should have been enough.

Print Screen and Paint work just fine, but there are some free programs that will make a Full Screen Capture which includes what you can not see on your screen at the time without scrolling. Screengrab is very easy to use should you need this method. If you use Firefox, there is an extension for it called Screengrab Extension.

You don't need to download any of it if Print Screen and Paint will do the job for you. As long as you do not need anything as a screen capture that you would have to scroll to see, then don't download it. It's just a useful utility to get a full capture.

Catpoop, your name makes me laugh everytime I see it. :whistling: I'm glad you've found our site so helpful. Tell all your friends - the more the merrier!

Major Payne, thanks for being such a help to catpoop (and I'm going to check out that Firefox extension!). I know you provided a lot of help with the Yahoo support questions also.

Urk, it looks like you're a new member - welcome to Geeks to Go, and I hope you stick around.

Glad to help where I can. I would answer more of the technical questions, but I'm doing a site that has close to 500 pages and I know I can not follow up a post for very long. I hope everyone will check out more of the great extensions for Firefox.

Thanks Sari. How can a man with a pulse say "no" to an avatar like that?
