printing a DOS screen

  Legolas 18:53 24 Oct 2003

Is there a way of printing a DOS screen. When I boot into the a: prompt with a boot up floppy there is text I would like to print out. I tried using the 'print screen' key but it did'nt appear to work.

It might be a problem with XP I imagine. I,ll give it another go with printscreen.

XP is not true DOS it is imitation, if you press print screen try pasting into Word processor

Thanks for the replies. VoG when you say you printed the command prompt screen was this the a: prompt screen or the command prompt within win XP?

woodchip I tried booting into the a: prompt from floppy and using print screen and pasting it into MS Word but it does'nt work.

Programs, Accessories, Command Prompt. Have Word open on the taskbar. 'prt scr', open Word and paste.

graham√ I know how to do a normal printscreen the problem is I want to print the screen you get when you boot in to the a: prompt from a floppy boot up disk. The printscreen option does not appear to work.

Pesala I am beginning to think you are right, I have an epsom USB printer so it will not print straight to the printer from that screen.

Pencil and paper.... I have heard of it but I,m not sure what it is ;-)

Sorry, I should have known you knew how to do it. So, Djohns hypothesis is likely to be the reason.

graham√ Your right it looks like it cannot be done....computers they are hopeless ;-)
