@dlowan,
(printed off the goat pic after I saw it on Boidas thread and put it up in my office - my boss LOVED it too - the school kids giggled when they saw it)!

@shewolfnm,
just clear off your background. there is a button on your key board called "PRTSC" its your print screen. just hit that button, then open up Paint and hit ctrl c and resize the picture to your likings and post away

Just changed my background yesterday, to something very peaceful and serene.
I snagged it from Izzies pics. She is surrounded by BEAUTY!

@Region Philbis,
When I open paint to paste, I do not have the option....
Its as if I did not save anything in the first place.

Should I have something highlighted so that print screen selects everything on my desktop?
If I have a2k open for example, and I click ctrl prtscn I get an image of a2k.
but I cant get it to work on my desk top

@shewolfnm,
Hey SheW - think you have a similar laptop to mine. Discovered that prt sc doesn't work and it's not possible to paste to paint, but there is something called "snipping tool" Shocked where it will save as a .jpg

You need to press ctrl while pressing the print scr button. Then in Paint you can press ctrl and the c button.

@djjd62,
Your background pic is beautiful. I would think that it would get a bit melancholy after a while, though.

Pardon me, actually, you need to press ctrl and the v button to paste onto Paint.

well, I cant figure out how to do it, but my desk top is all black with this photo in the center.

I only have one folder on my desktop besides the recycle bin and I put everything I need in that one folder.

@InfraBlue,
Pressing the Print Screen button (Prt Scrn) will take a screenshot of the entire monitor. If you hold down Alt while pressing Print Screen, then it will take a screenshot of the active window only. Holding down Ctrl has no effect on Print Screen's behavior.

This is on windows, anyways.
