    If you got Windows 7 use the Snipping Tool in accessories........ or download a screen capture program.....

      when all else fails - sometimes the "print screen" button works, but I think some PDFs are protected - somehow they disable any copying... not sure how - but sometimes I've made it work, sometimes not.
      There's always something new to learn.

        There is a bitchin' free program called Sangit (you can test it for 30 days free) that works great for this.
        That which you manifest is before you.

          Stiney, what operating system are you using?
          It's really no different than trying to glue them back on after she has her way.

                Stiney,

                After you hit the "print screen" button, open Paint

                Up on the Paint toolbar, click the "Edit" button.

                Select "paste" and your image will pop into the Paint screen.

                You can then edit it directly in Paint or save it as a .jpg and edit it later with your favorite photo editor.

                    SnagIt is great, use it at my job all the time to make documentation of IT processes.
                    MWsnap is free and very good. http://www.snapfiles.com/get/mwsnap.html
                    if you have Windows 7 use Start > All Programs > Accessories > Snipping tool

                          You can also paste it in Word or E-mail and bypass paint.
                          Great for e-mailing an error that pops up for your techie to see.
