    I clicked on new posts and got a white screen with a bunch of stuff on it about MySQL not being able to connect. I refreshed and go a long list of stuff that looked like URL addresses. Finally, I just closed the browser and restarted it and came to woodbarter via a book mark and everything appears ok.

    If you don't know how to get a screen shot, let me know, I can walk ya through it. (What browser are you using so I can gather some info on it.)

    On a PC or laptop you don't need an app or add on - all you have to do is hit the PrtSc/SysRq button and it saves the image to your clipboard, where you can just paste it into your image editor to save or edit and save.

    Sometimes you gotta hit function or alt and prt scrn

    Most versions of windows also have the 'snipping' tool under start-all programs- accessories

    On a mac, you can hit command shift 4

    That's what I said earlier lol

    But yes, the snip tool is much better for a majority of things, especially when you only want a portion of the screen to be captured.

    I use the print screen and paint together. Since I leave paint open most of the time, this is no more than 3 button clicks.
    Print Screen
    Enlarge Paint (if not already enlarged)
    Paste

    I also use the snipping tool if I want just a small portion but I use Alan's method mostly because it's faster and fewer clicks . . .
