Alt+print screen (and print screen) is the default windows screen
capture utility -- nowt to do with paint, other than paint can paste
from the clipboard. I didn't know PSP had it's own screen capture
utility--a long story but a coworker expert with PSP told me that it
used the windows screen capture utility and I never had reason to test
it (being a SnagIt user).

So the issue is that Vista is preventing the Windows screen capture
utility from copying to the clipboard? Or does the screen capture
utility not exist in Vista? Or is there a problem pasting from the
clipboard in Vista?

Hi Sean,

For Paint, you would use ALT+PRINT SCREEN -- which is apparently blocked
for certain Vista screens.

Paint Shop Pro has its own screen capture utility, right there on the
menu bar ("Capture").
