Can anyone tell me what screen print is. Does every computer have this or do I have to upgrade.

If you press the creen print button on your keyboard. Your PC will capture a picture of what is on your screen. Open up a black word document and press Ctrl V and the screen shot will be pasted onto the document. It is a good method of recording error codes and I've had a few of those!

screenprint, is just a utility, which by pressing the printscreen button on your keyboard, should save the picture on screen at the time, to the clipboard.

Prt Scr- Printscreen button
Captures an image of what the screen is displaying
at that moment.

To use it yout need to press Ctrl and PrntScr

Then open an image editor, create a new blank page
then Edit/Paste[ or Ctrl- V]

You can also get some good utilities that will automatically print when you press print screen, or will capture and save a file etc. etc. - can get quite advanced with what you can do if you need to.

For example, we have usage of a web application with 'not the best' printing capability so users have a key that automatically captures the window and prints it in landscape fittign all of the active window to one page.
