Hello Don.c and Welcome to Geeks to Go!

You might get answered more quickly by posting your question in the XP Forum found ---> Here

I'm not familiar with the XP snapshots, now if your OS was Vista I'd be able to help :)

Most snapshots using PrtScr key only take a snapshop of the active window area. If you want a snapshopt of a window that needs to scroll, you need to use a program like Faststone Capture 5.3 (last free version) that allows scrolling screen captures and has its own built in graphics editor.

To use the PrtScr, just press the key. Open MS Paint or a better graphics editor and press Ctrl + V to paste the screen capture into the active work area. Save image in the format that you want. Usually *.jpg is fine. Save it to a folder or Desktop area where you'll find it later. Open your mail client, go to Insert Menu and either/both insert/add image/attachment.
