This is how to supply a screen print.
1] Open your Internet Explorer as you would usually. Maximise it so it fills the screen.
2] Press the "Print Screen/SysReq" button on the keyboard.
I don't know whether you are using a laptop or not and if so which make and model, but if you are, the Print Screen key may need an additional key to be pressed as well, like the Fn or CTRL key.
Doing that creates a copy in memory.
3] Minimise the browser window then go to Start > All Programs > Accessories, find "Paint" and click. This will open Microsoft's Paint application.
4] Press CTRL + v . Best way is to hold down the CTRL key then press the " v " key on the keyboard. Then release both keys. The screen copy should then appear inside the Paint window.
5] Go to File > Save as and click. If this is the new version of Paint you will see a small icon top left hand side, just to the left of the "Home - View" menu options. Mouse down to "Save as".
If you see options to select which format, select "JPEG Picture".
6] A new window will open. Navigate to Desktop. Then where it says "File name" type in a short file name. Where it says "Save as type" make sure JPEG is selected. Then click the Save button. When done you can close down Paint.
7] That file should now be on your Desktop.
8] Open the browser, (or maximise it again), and go to http://imageshack.us/
9] When ImageShack is fully loaded, click the Browse button, then use that to navigate to your Desktop and highlight the file you have just created. Click that file and if necessary click "Open".
10] Now click the "Upload" button on the web site. Your image should now upload to ImageShack.
11] When done the web page will change to give you a list of options. However all you need is to click on the image to enlarge it. Now, copy the web address that is in the address bar.
12] In a new browser window, (don't close down this ImageShack window just yet), return to this forum and click Reply to this post. Type a subject then in the main body of the reply window simply paste the link you have just copied.
13] Preview your post and in the preview click the link you have just provided to see if the link works and to see if the image is large enough for others to see properly. If all is fine, click Submit.
I hope that helps.
