    Have you tried the Snipping Tool? Let's see if I can attach a file or two. The best part is, you can draw a box around a part of the screen and save just what you want.

    My prt screen is above sysrq, if I just hit that button wouldn't it just be using the sys rq button? would I need to shift then hit the button?
    What is the snipping tool?

    I'm no good at this, but it's easy. Save the snipped capture and then upload it to GT as an attachment.

    Less trouble than opening Photoshop just to save a small portion of a screen cap.

    Thanks for the tip! :thumbsup:

    just press the "prt scr/sys rq" button. it copies your screen to the clipboard. open up paint/word/photoshop (anything really) and paste (ctrl+v). takes 2 seconds to crop if you dont want the whole thing.
