found an easy to use product to capture screen pictures and such at the above website, I'm only using the trial version, but thought some might find it usefull.

Ifranview, the free program from this board will also do screen captures. I use it often.

I just clicked on Print Screen & then pasted it into Paint. Seems to work fine.
PS: This is a multi-monitor setup.

Bill, your good, I never read far enough to know you needed to paste it, but that works too, guess I don't need to pay for it:)

Yeah, thats a fun little joke to play on people. Take a screen shot of your desktop and set it as your desktop background then hide all the icons...ha ha ha...people try to click on the icons but they are only part of the picture...fun fun fun... :)

Also hide the taskbar and invert the desktop image.

I did that to a coworker. She was on the phone with Dell and I just sat there being quiet.

Well, I don't know how to actually capture the desktop, but here's the picture I just switched to. You get the idea.

great pic:headbang:


screen capture steps:

(1) hit PRINT SCREEN on your keyboard (copies screen to clipboard)
(2) open PAINT
(3) go to edit PASTE
(4) FILE, SAVE & name the file

you may need to resize, but it's a good place to start

So those of you running multi-monitor, what kind of displays? I'm still on twin 17" older Trinitron CRTs that still look great. Would love to upgrade to a pair of flat panels but haven't dug that deep yet.

I know what you mean.....some of those old CRT's refuse to die also.... bad as you want them to!

I finally just heired my old 17" CRT to my kids and went to town and bought my LCD screen...I couldn't wait any longer

I have a 21" Trinitron as the main, and a 19" Trinitron for the 2nd. Can't justify a flat until the trinitrons finally die.

Hard to find any pricing on those. I've thought about upgrading to a dual LCD setup like this:

Cost is about a grand for a pair of 17s.

AJ, the one I was looking at was $9,995.00

yes, $5.00 short of Ten Grand!!!

I noticed they didn't bother to show their price on their webpage, and I usually know what that means..... "If you gotta ask, you don't need to know":rolleyes:

I was up at Tahoe last summer for the Riva reunion and lunch. We started at Obexers and cruised across to the Thunderbird Lodge. There were about 15-20 boats, most all of them Riva's. The lodge is awesome! Perfect setting for these boats.

Ditto ... Is that your ride?
errr...sure :rolleyes:

Just Kidding. I belong to a couple of antique and classic boat clubs, so I know some of these guys. I was invited to come along for the cruise. Riva's are just a bit out of my price range. Some of these boats run $200k plus :eek: Here's another pic:
