Help an old man out dude

help me out Bubba. How do I save what my desktop looks like?
you can get a screen cap on a windows box by holding
down "control" and then pressing "print screen." (print
screen should be up on the top of the keyboard, near
the function keys...) (also, holding "alt" and hitting print
screen will give you just the active window....)

then open paint. start ---> accessories ---> paint.

then hit cntrl-V to paste the screen capture. it'll ask if
you want the bitmap enlarged. tell it, "hell yeah!" then
click file ----> save as and be sure to save it as a jpeg
to keep the file size reasonable.

bubba - you stole my background! ;)

oh, and just like with a photo, you can use irfan view
to *easily* resize the image as i did. :thumb
