I'm currently using a wierd DOD system that is under development. I use
the MS-Windows Alt-PrintScreen feature and MS-Word to capture and print
screens so I can show the System Administrator what the error messages
were without the need to write them out.

I Alt-Printscreen when what I need is on the screen, then click on the
status bar button to go to Word, then Paste. Add a couple of spaces or
a page break, save all, then click back to my development application.

This saves on the hard drive, but I could easily save to a floppy.

If you want the ability to capture only a window, or only a part of the
screen, I know of some shareware that does that, but I think it needs to
be installed on the hard drive.
