the image will be as large as your screen, so you should scale it down before uploading it to imageshack...

@Region Philbis,
Good instructions but nothing happens when I open Paint and then press control. Where do I find 'print screen'?

@Region Philbis,
Well I'll be danged. I've spent hours and hours and hours at the computer almost every day since the late 1980's, and I never before noticed that key. Thanks Region. Now I'll see if I can follow the rest of the directions.

(I feel like the gal who was so frustrated when she couldn't find 'any key' to press on her keyboard)

@Foxfyre,
The print screen key is a leftover from the very early days of command-line computers (DOS). When you pressed the print screen key, whatever was on your screen was sent to the printer for printing.

@Region Philbis,
I've been using this for years

I just love the hat head, and the baseball cap being held behind his back.
