For example OSs like Windows XP and Vista. How do I use them for my screen dumps?

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) K*B 16:37 18 Aug 2013 Thanks Guys.
