Screenshots – how to do a screenshot and a warning.

Thursday, February 5th, 2009

When doing documentation it is easy to do a screen shot:
Just open a window with the page you want to take a screenstot of and click PrintScrn, this will automatically copy your whole screen into the clipboard, You can then paste your screenshot as an image into any other program such as paint or word. Use Alt-PrintScreen to copy just the current window.

Warning – When doing screenshots switch off any browser toolbars. Close all other windows. Check what else is visible on your screen. The toolbars may show what you last searched for – information you may rather keep private from the general public or your boss. You do not want to discover that your account statement is visible in the background in the middle of doing a presentation!
