Saving Screen Shots

Using a pc with XP .... I follow this routine in making a screen shot.

  • Click “PrintScreen” key
  • Click Start/AllPrograms/PAINT
  • Click Ctrl-V
  • Click one of the options offered to adjust the size
  • Click SaveAs and name the file, like Screenshot May 15.jpg

At that point I get a screen that is titled "Save Configuration" with"Settings" and "Quality" on it.

What is this "Save Configuration" screen and what do "Settings" and "Quality" refer to? What am I suppose to be entering on this screen, if anything? How do I continue making the screen shot?

Thanks for your help.

After the print screen image appears in Paint, click File, Save as and as per my screenshot, it will originally be shown as Bitmap you use drop down menu to select Jpeg.
I do not know where your settings and quality comes from on this procedure, you must be using a sub heading on Edit
