I want to get a paper copy of my laptop config file, how do I print the info in the pop up window

Try a screen-shot, or if possible Copy/Paste into Word or similar. Never tried it myself, so just guessing.

Screenshot tip: Hold down Alt button whilst you press 'Print Screen' button then only the Active window will copy to the clipboard and not the rest of Desktop screen.

Then you open a picture program like Paint and paste the screenshot in and then you can save it as a .jpg or whatever you want. Then you can print the .jpg picture in the normal way.

Yes you can paste into Word if want to - 'Print Screen' is just a screenshot picture copied to the clipboard.
