    I'm 13 and I've always wondered people saved the image on their screen as a picture file on a PC. Someone please help me.

    From what you've written I don't think anybody will be able to work out what your problem is. You're going to have to be a little (well a lot actually) more specific.

    What you are saying is not very clear at all. Help us to help you by giving us a bit more info.

    EDIT: Wow I am slow today. Well it is my first day back at work.

    If you're in Windows I think you have to Paste the image somewhere.

    In that case then read psychofreaks post. :)

    Command + Shift + 3 = screenshot of entire desktop.
    Command + Shift + 4 = creates a cursor you can drag to 'capture' a specific part of your screen.
    Command + Shift + 4 + move cursor over an open window then press 'space' and click. Will capture that window.

    There are a few more but I can't remember them.

    EDIT: I am VERY slow today. You want to know how to do it on a PC :eek:

    If you're on a mac, and aren't too good with shortcuts, then Grab works (it comes with your computer)
