Hi Cody,

Yes I have Windows 8, but I am still searching for the prtscn!

Thank you for the explicit instructions, though! (I am being serious, I do need detailed instructions!)

I'll let you know if I find it.

edit: Also need to find the Windows key!



bug


No worries prtScn might be written print screen
And my bad I assumed your keyboard would have a windows key, on mine it's bottom left, second from the left next to the control key and has a picture of four squares on it.

They may be written on you keys, in which case you'll have to hold control down as well.

You may need a friend to help LOL

Cody


ETA: I don't know right from left LOL

Get a guy from London to jump on a flight, ply him with whiskey, and watch the woodchip fall off the wall.

Or more likely me fall down the stairs LOL.

Screenshot? I just hit "Ctrl" and "PrtSc" together.
(That takes a screenshot and loads it into the clipboard)

My PrtSc is on the top row, above my F9 key.

I then open Paint, and do a clipboard paste into a blank image (You can Ctrl+V to do a Paste btw)

Save the image (or crop & save the bits you want).

Bob is your mum's brother!

Hi!

I don't have any keys above the function keys, but I did find the key with the windows icon!!

(I'm still laughing at the 'any' key!)
Don't know how I could have have missed that!

Now, the function keys do have little symbols on them, (maybe that's what you meant by above.)

Yes I think I will have to ask my son . If it involves Windows 8, he is clueless, as is my husbund. But I can at least see if they can find the prt scr.

One last question:
does
'Bob is your mum's brother!' mean 'piece of cake!'

my boss is always saying "and Bobs your uncle..."

I don't know who Uncle Bob is, but he seems really good at finishing tasks.

LOL yeah he's a useful guy to know.

Around London we say "And Robert's your mother's brother"

But we southerners talk proper like geezer.

I am more than happy to be called a "Northern Brit".

I will still reside in the northern part of the British Isles, regardless of whether they break-up politically!
Geographically, I am, and always will be, a Brit!

btw - Our local version of the "Bob's your uncle" thing is...
Boabs yer maws brither!
and yes, it does indeed mean Job Done! There You Are! Sorted! etc.

@BUG - I Just Noticed on my other PC - My "PrtSc" button is properly labelled "Print Screen / SysRq" and is above the number pad section at the top right hand side of the keyboard.
(On my laptop, it is a seperate key which sits above the f9 key.)

BUG - what model of PC have you got? Maybe we can help find the elusive key for you?

On my old Toshiba laptop, the prtsc key was on the top row, just to the right of the f12 key.

I've been unwell lately and haven't been able to sit at the computer much, but this is a lovely thing to make me feel better!

Congrats to ALL the entries, I'm super impressed at the level of artistry in this thread.

Hello. First, Nenothtu said to tell you he said hello. He really does have tons of respect for you.

Second, thank you for the compliment. Much appreciated.


I wish you'd have put your scary ATS displacement dude in as an official entry. I reckon that one would have won!!

Please say "hi back at 'ya" to neno! And tell him I'm needing another hoax to debunk!
I hope you're both doing well.
You're lucky to have each other
