    if you hit the print screen button then the snapshot is in the clipboard, so go open paint and use paste (ctrl + v) and the snapshot will be pasted in as a new image.

    It's not something you go to..it just means you have something copied. For instance, if you highlight this text, and push "Ctrl+C", the text will be on your clip board. Just push "Ctrl+V" to paste the screen shot.

    You did a surprisingly good job capturing pictures of the screen with a camera, but for better images, use the button that says some variation of "print screen" or "prt sc" on your key board. This will take a snap shot of your monitor and copy it to you clip board. From there, you can paste it in paint, or any other image editor.

    all you do is set your camera's shutter speed to the refresh speed, sya 60hz then 1 60th of a second give a single frame result, if it's too dark go to 1/30th... use multiples from that there counting class dingus... but yeah print screen's easier.

    not agruing but sometimes you gotta do what ya gotta do, now the issue is solved I think we should go get the instructable robot drunk again then and see if it will tell us some good stories...

    I ws there, it wasn't pretty, once it gets to a certain stage in the night he's a violent sexual predator, there's only two lamposts left in the place and both have been severly terrorized... thankfully though he has a penchant for speed cameras...

    Oh god I had completely forgotten about that, but we'll have to mive to thetell a story about the robot forum, we've hijacked this just a tad...
