Copying Icons

  Paisley 15:57 10 Dec 2003

Can anyone tell me how I can copy desktop icons such as recylce bin and folder so that I can use them in a word document?

The easiest way is to click the print screen key on the key board and paste into a graphics program. Then you can cut the particular icon you want and paste into the word document.

when you say graphics prgram could I use paint?

Yes, Paint will do it.

Or you could use a program such as IconXtractor to hoover out the icons from any file.

Thank you just one more thing how do i just copy a single image rather than the whole desktop

If you want just the active window, hold the alt key while pressing the print screen.

Don't know about individual icons though.
