I'm not very computer savvy either, but what you are actually doing when "taking a picture" of something on the computer is getting a "screen shot" of what is on your computer screen. So, as far as I know, you get your monitor looking like you want it to (remember to close things that are making those bars at the bottom of the screen if you don't want them to show) and you "Print Screen." On my computer, I hold control, and press the "Print Scrn" button which is uptop right next to the F12 key.
Then, you can paste your image into whatever document you wish using a standard paste command, or Ctrl-V.
Like I said, I'm new to this myself, but I think that will work... hope it helps.
there is a button that says "prt sc" -print screen hit it when you are on the page you want a picture of, then open your word processor and paste your picture into it with the paste function ( I think! It's been awhile!)
The print screen option only grabs the part of the screen that you're looking at. If there's content that's off-screen that you want to save, using the print screen option won't cut it.
Better yet, there are two options.
First, if you're the only one going to be using the information, download a program that will print to pdf files. Just search for that, "print to pdf". There's a lot of good free programs for that.
Second, if you're wanting to use the screen shot for other peoples viewing (remember the copyrights), then you can do something similar. There are programs that print to jpg, that will print the entire page without having to cut and paste a thousand times. Again, just search for "print to jpg".
"Print to jpg" is a great way to capture. I usually use snag it, but it paid application. FYI, If you use Windows 7 there are s build in application name snipping tool. But it only capture your active selection
Yeah, the tulips are beginning to show and the daffodils are already in bloom. Saw my first pair of yellow finches and a pair of cardinals. The Canada goose pair down the road are already incubating their eggs. The sun will emerge again soon! Typical Great White North weather!
