I can't remember how to do this... I want to save the current screen as a
jpeg (or other image file). Thanks for the help.

To save the entire screen, press Print Scrn and then paste into your
favorite graphics editing program. To save just the currently active
window dialog, press Alt+Print Screen.

Pressing the <PrtScn> key copies the entire display to the
clipboard. Pressing <ALT>+<PrtScn> copies only the active Window to
the clipboard (iow, into RAM). To view the screen capture, open a
graphics program, such as MS Paint, and press <CTRL>+V. This will
paste the contents of the clipboard (your screenshot) into the open
file, and allow you to view it or save it as a file for later use.

There's a free, nifty, little, utility, (Printkey2000), here,
http://www.freewareweb.com/cgi-bin/archive.cgi?ID=292 . Once it's installed,
just click on the icon and it automatically captures whatever is currently
on your screen.

PrintScrn button (near the Pause/Break and Scroll Lock Key) but depends on
your K/bd layout.
