How do I get my "Print Screen" to function? I read a thread sometime ago
regarding the use with another key but can't seem to find it. Any help is
appreciated.

Hi

Can't you import the result of Print Screen into Paint using Ctrl + V?

Pressing *Print Screen* puts the whole screen onto the Clipboard, _or_
Pressing *Alt + Print Screenn* puts the currrently open window onto the
Clipboard.

Open *Paint* Word* *Visio* or whatever and *Paste* (Ctrl + V) the contents
of the Clipboard.

That seems to work now. Not sure why it wasn't working before.

Thanks Much,

Probably because you thought something was going to pop up automatically
in front of you displaying the results of that action Not so. You have
to either open the Clipbook Viewer or open Word, Wordpad, Notepad,
Paint, etc, and paste the result to see it.
