No offense, but have you ever wondered what the "print screen" button does? If you ever thought that it took screenshots you were right.

You should of just shown them paint...

havanacus (author)2008-12-19

Why didn't you just use the print screen function on your computer?...

8bit (author)havanacus2008-12-19

Yeah, my girlfriend taught me that. You can press the printscreen key and then ctrl+V paste the image into paint.

alexsolex (author)8bit2008-12-20

or you can just press |AltGr| + |print screen| keys to just get the active window

craig3 (author)2008-12-19

you can also go START, all programs, games. Much easier way to go through start menu

CrimsonChain (author)2008-12-19

I was hoping my computer would have the game on it because it is a fun time waster. Thanks for the Instructable anyways. Also to improve your images take screen shots instead of using your web cam.

thenameisbam (author)2008-12-19
