Anyone know how to "save a screen" as-in, take a snapshot of it to save?

I use ScreenHunter Pro, but they have a free version too.

Ahh, but then it's bitmap (BMP) and looks like crap if you resize or convert it to a Jpeg.

Doh! Sorry. Wrong button.

Never looked good when I've done it for Flight Sim screens. Plus it's too much work!

I like it to save as a JPEG, resized, and named all in one click!

I tried the paint thing, but it only shows the portion of a page that will fit on the screen at one time. If I scroll down, it's cut short.

+1 to SP1Grll on IrfanView on screenshots. Flexible - lets you select what porion of the screen you're going to save.

If you're looking to copy a web page you can save as HTML complete and most of the content will be saved for you.

Not 100% clear what you're looking to do.

You can hold down the alt button before pushing the print screen button and only the active window is captured, not the whole screen.

Very useful to create 'click this button style' training documentation.

MS paint can save as JPEG
and the highest quality bitmap should not look bad if converted later

You may be looking for Print Key 2000. Here is the free non supported version. Simple install, small program.

Print Key 2000 page

Enjoy.
