    Use Alt Print Screen.

    Then open a program capable of handling images. A photo editor of some sort works best...but even something that will handle rich text format .rtf will work.

    Once you have the program open. Go to edit/paste, or right click and select paste.

    Voila! You should have it.

    OK, do you have WordPad? Or any Photo Editor? Or any publishing software. Or just plain Word? Any of those should work

    Let me know...

    wouldn't the "capture frame" button on Power DVD do what you want to?

    As "res2cue" says the capture button (The little Camera Icon) on most DVD player software will capture a single frame of dvd.(make shure you know where it is being saved to) Then you can open it with most picture editing programs (I use Picture IT)to edit And print it
