Here's how to do it in windows:

4. When the command prompt opens type the following. ENTER after each new line.
5. Erase your cookies in whatever browser you are using.

My first computer was before Windows. DOS (MSDOS and DRDOS) were all we had. But here's a question for you. I have some dos executables that I wrote in QuickBasic and compiled into exe files. When I run them, they go full screen. Is there any way I can do a screen grab from them and later open it in windows paint? Print Screen doesn't capture them. If you can answer this, I'll be very impressed!
To capture a screen image, I make sure the window I want to copy has focus (its title bar is dark blue in the case of Windows OS) hold down one of the Alt keys and then hit PrtScrn (the print screen key) then in paint I do Edit->Paste.
I hope that helps
what i do is i open the file u can do that and wait hold on
