It would be much easier to use a screen capture program, such as SnagIt,
which allows you to include the cursor.

However, if you can't, you could do the following:

1. From the control panel, double-click "Mouse" and do a screen capture of
that screen, which will include the cursor pointer.
2. In Paint, paste in the screen and cut out the pointer and put it off to
the side.
3. Erase the rest of the screen.
4. Do another alt-print screen of the screen you want and paste it into
Paint, making sure it doesn't cover the pointer.
5. "Cut" the pointer and move it where you want it to go on the screen.
6. Save the file.

It's not perfect, and it's a hassle, but it will do the trick with the tools
you mentioned.

We have a laptop in a foreign location. We need a screen capture of what
it's doing that INCLUDES the cursor. Does anyone know how to get one using
Paint or Print Screen or any other basic windows/MS Office feature?
