I just bought a new laptop and it has Vista. I am used to XP and no nothing about Vista. I work a lot with pictures and graphics. In XP you could hit PrtSc open paint hit Ctrl and V and it would put the picture in paint. Vista won't allow that. Is there another way to do it?

Dear Susan,

As you are using a laptop can you reply to this messgae telling me if you have a button fn between the start and ctrl button.

If you do then you must hold this button and ctrl and then print screen.

Then open paint and ctrl + v should work.

Hope this helps !
Please reply if it doesnt work and if it does please also reply.
