Hello friends, how do I create screen dumps using my Windows OS rather than resorting to a third party utility? For example OSs like Windows XP and Vista. How do I use them for my screen dumps?

ctrl + PrtScr keys

or Alt + Prt Scr keys

will copy whole screen or just open window to the clipboard - then paste into a document for later use.

Prt Scr key takes a picture of the screen and saves it to the clipboard. Then you open Paint program and paste the contents of the clipboard into it. Then you can give it a name when you save it.

Holding down Alt key when you press Prt Scr key will take a picture of whichever program window is active (without the rest of the desktop and taskbar showing round the edges)
