How to Create & Post a Screenshot


Recommended Posts

Creating Screenshots


Inserting a screen shot into your post is easy:


  • select the application window that you want to screenshot and press ALT+PRINTSCREEN. This will make a screenshot to the clipboard. Alternatively, you can use any window "snipping" tool as well.
  • simply "paste" the image into your topic where you would like it to appear.






Posting Screenshots


Please reduce the size of your screen shots to around 1000px wide before pasting them to avoid compression artifacts in the display.





Full screen Media Center screenshots

By default, Windows Media Center screenshots can only be made in windowed mode. There is a registry trick though to enable fullscreen screenshots:

  • Start the Registry Editor (start > type “regedit” in the search box)
  • Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Media Center\Service\Video
  • Create a new (32-bit) DWORD Value called “EnablePrintScreen” and set it’s value to “1”



You can now create screenshots in fullscreen mode using ALT+PRINTSCREEN.
