I would like to save a screenshot as a jpeg file using Windows Paint.The instructions I received were to go to the print screen button,open paint ,paste the shot and save as jpeg. I am running Vista Basic on my laptop but when I follow the above steps,the paste tab is greyed out.The above steps work quite easily when using XP but not so with Vista. Would greatly appreciate any assistance.
Like you I used to get trouble with my desktop icon layout getting mixed up and I used to save an image of it so that I could put it back the way it was. That was until I found a thread on this site which recommended howtogeek's "Save and Restore Desktop Icon Layout in Windows Vista", which also works in Windows XP. See link below.
Thanks for your SnapFiles link. I have downloaded it and the results are similar to the howtogeek's one.
What interested me, in particular, in the howtogeek's solution was the possibility of Right Clicking on the Desktop instead of My Computer, which seems more logical. I've had some success with this under Windows XP.
