Minmize everything (or hit the "Show Desktop Item" in the shortcut menu/tray next to the start button) so that the desktop is visible.

Then hit the "PrntScrn" button.

Then open a program like Microsoft Photo Editor and use the "Paste as New Image" option under the Edit pulldown.

Then save the image (usually after resizing it to make it a little smaller) and host it somewhere.

... at least that's how I do it. Knowing me, there's probably a much easier way

Not on every keyboard (like mine) - but it's usually up around the F12 key somewhere, near the top of the keyboard.

Say what?

I'll try and follow those instructions...BUT do I even have a 'Print Screen' button?

Eric The(ReallyDecrepit)Hun




Thats too much work.

A larger version of this... actually made it myself in Photoshop. Pretty easy. The tutorial is on www.spoono.net.

Used to have a blue one like in the tutorial, but I lost it when my computer reverted itself three months. Damn computer.

When I get my new one, not sure what I'll have.

Oh, and LotBoy, you're a nerd.

No real problem there, I'm a nerd too.

Digital Rebel set at 1600 speed @ 30 seconds.
Then used a 2 million watt spot light to paint in the rock formations.
Those formations are at least 10 stories high.




Amazing - I was wondering how the rocks were lit up like that. I figured it couldn't be a full moon behind you, because then the stars wouldn't have come out.

It's an amazing picture!!

Thanks to everyone who posted the actual image that they are using as their background, and not a screenshot of their desktop showing said image. Some of us image 'theives' who might like to use some of these don't want all your icons on the background.

(Asbestos Suit donned in anticipation of all the upcoming "Hey dumba$$, the thread title said show us your 'desktops' and not your 'desktop image'" responses.

I’m going to have to explain this one

This is a set up in which both monitors are in portrait view, with the widest part going up / down, rather then the usual left / right. The monitor on the right is an Acer C303 Tablet PC on a stand, and the one the left is a Dell 1800 FP hooded up to the aforementioned Tablet PC. The two are then integrated such that the primary monitor is the Dell and the secondary monitor is the one on the Tablet PC. Finally the reason they are different sizes, is because the Acer has a 14 inch screen and the Dell LCD has an 18 inch screen.


This is really a useful setup, especially when doing research on the internet – because I can type on my main monitor and then have notes or other websites on my Tablet screen. Oh and I made the wallpaper you see (on the left) with freehand drawing using a free art program called Art Rage.
