Use the prt sc one. It should function the same as your old pc one.

Hold the ALT key as well to capture the CURRENT screen (ACTIVE window).

I like the Printscreen program from Gadwin. When it's active, pressing the Prt Scr key lets me select a part of the screen (I seldom want the whole screen) and rt click then saves it to a predetermined folder.

Hi Fay!

Once you press the PRT SC button, open PAINT (START-->ALL PROGRAMS-->ACCESSORIES-->PAINT). Once Paint is open, click EDIT-->PASTE and the picture will appear. Now you can edit it, save it and/or do anything else you want to do with it.

If this doesn't work, go back to your desktop that you want to take the screenshot of, and hit ALT+PRC SCR and repeat the process I stated above.

Another one is screenprint 32 which works on 98SE and XP, once installed and started from programmes, you need to do this the first time only, it takes over the print screen key
