I was trying to do a 'Print Screen' of what I see when my PC locks up on the new site with IE8 but I can't find a way of dropping it into a post.

Any clues?

Print screen then paste it into a word doc or if you have an image editing software paste it into there and save it has a jpeg or gif.

I do this all the time.
1. Hit the Print Screen button to capture the entire screen. Or hit Alt+Print Screen to only capture the current window
2. I use Paint.Net as my editing softare and paste it into that.
3. Save As JPG
4. Then upload it as usual.

I had tried the Word option earlier, but I couldn't get the .doc file small enough to be allowed as an attachment. :dunno:

Used MS-paint and that seems to do the trick. Thanks

Just increased the size allowance for ".doc" attachments, should be good for future attachments.

is there an option for .docx also, for those with new-fangled word processors?
