Making Screenshots

Post by Andy Brown » Sun Jan 08, 2006 4:48 am

I'm a bit illiterate when it comes to computers so could someone explain to me gently how to make screenshots of Firefight games?

Thanks,

Andy Brown

Well, you could simply hit the print-screen-key to copy it into your clipboard. Just paste it into MSPaint or whatever graphics editor you use and save it.

That simple, huh! Thanks mate. I would never have stumbled on that by myself.

It's a fantastic trick to grab a screenshot from any Windows program, and is very useful if you want to "borrow" someone else's graphics!

Alt-PrtScn only takes a shot of the currently selected window rather than the whole screen.

Oh, cool! That's nice to know! I remember when I wondered how to snap a screenshot. I was gunna go get a program specifically for taking screenshots. Uggh, what a hassle for nothing! Lol!

Heh heh, funny you should bring that up, Sean. My little bro is always snapping shots of your Firefight game and making little wars and battles with the men and tanks in MS Paint. Woks perfectly!
My thanks and best regards to all my former submitters.
