how do I screen capture? is there a program in xp or do i have to dl one from somewhere?
if you are just trying to do a screen cap of your desktop, just hit the "Print Screen" button on your keyboard, then paste that into a picture editing program (MS Paint will work)
If you are trying to do a screen cap of a video you are watching on your PC, you need to go into the options menu of whatever program you are using and turn off hardware acceleration, then you will be able to do a "Print Screen" and paste the pic.
You might want to take a look at this thread if you're capturing video signals:
BTW, it's Alt-Print Screen and then you can paste into Word or Paint,
alt+ptintscreen gets current window only
Printscreen gets entire screen.
Thanks, I wasn't aware of that...
