Used to get a lot of these on the old DJ board, and thought I'd give it a whirl here. Post up your desktop screenshots!<br><br><br><br>
Here's how (in case you dunno)<br><br><br><br>
1. minimize/maximize windows so it looks how you want it to look.<br><br>
2. press {PRINT SCREEN}<br><br>
3. open up any image editor (windows paint, even) and paste into a new doc.<br><br>
4. Lower the size some.<br><br><br><br>

I've seen these on other boards and always thought they were neat but haven't started one for that reason. We are doing better in the bandwidth department so I don't see this making a huge impact. I'll be posting mine tomorrow sometime.

How do you do it on a Mac?

Hehehe, I'd do mine but all I have is the plain win98 default screen (kind of greenish/aqua) with a recycle bin, network neighborhood, inbox and my computer icons.<br><br><br><br>
My tray is pretty much empty and I have everything removed from the quickstart menu to the immediate right of the Start button.<br><br><br><br>
Hehhe, I just turn on what I need, when I need it so my desktop would be pretty bland to bother with a screencap.

It didn't work for me either. What's pushing those three buttons supposed to do, copy it? I tried to paste it in MS Paint too but 'paste' didn't even show up as an option, just 'paste from.'

What's weird is I actually meant shift-alt, which takes a screenshot of just the active window, which is the wrong thing to do anyway!<br><br><br><br>
Clearly, I'm just plain confused by myself.
