    To do I screen dump - you press CTRL+PRINT SCRN...

    This puts it onto the clipboard.

    Go into paint and just paste it in, you can then edit etc.....

    Not really a question for the dvdr newbie forum, but none the less.....

    Thanks for the reply and sorry it's on the wrong forum. I did what you said but it will not paste (past is greyed out and ctrl v does nothing) Can you tell me where to post please.

    It won't work if you just open and paint then paste.....

    You just need to click on an icon on the left hand side (any icon) then paste.....

    Better off in the safety valve I think....

    A Mod may move it
