    You mean you want to know how to take a screen shot?

    To do this all you do is press the "Print Screen" button on your keyboard and that will capture the current screen.

    Now open Paint (C:\WINDOWS\Pbrush.exe) or any other image editing program such as PaintShop Pro and just paste the image in by pressing "Ctrl+V" on your keyboard and it will paste the image (a screenshot of your current screen.)

    Hopefully this is what you wanted to know...

    not at all! i know that.

    But when you re-size the screen shot to fit on a website the image gets pixelated!

    I need to stop this?

    Run, don't walk, to

    www.techsmith.com

    and download an eval copy of SnagIt, the hands down winner of screen shot capture programs.

    Play with the options - you can capture windows, window regions, the entire desktop. "Window" can also mean in individual button or menu box.

    It is very, very, good.

    I use it all the time for writing documentation.

    (use the resize function - it works with good results)

    If you're using photoshop, using Image Resize will give it kinda bad quality. It's better if you use the TRANSFORM tool (Edit>Transform) and hold SHIFT to keep aspect ratio. That way whether your picture is large or small, it always looks good.
