    You can press the Prnt Scrn button on your keyboard. That will capture the whole screen. Or press Alt - Prnt Scrn to capture just the active window. The screen cap will be copied to the clipboard, then open Paint or some other image program, then paste, crop if needed, and save.

    I use Irfan View. Small & simple. You have the option of saving the screen capture directly to file or display in the program, adjust color/add text/whatever, then save. Can also capture the entire screen or just a select area.

    Toolbar remover program.

    There is a program which will list all the installed toolbars/BHO's on I.E, Firefox and Chrome.
    If you choose to use it, at the end of the install part, there are 2 options, be sure to untick them, or you will have a different home page !
    I have tried it, and seems ok.

    It sort of worked. Enough so it was worth downloading.
    Got rid of the short Ashampoo search windows in the upper left hand corner of all 3
    browsers.
    But Bing is still the main browser window in IE and Chrome, and one of the choices in FF
    .
    FF is just fine the way it is.. I like having browser choices.
    I would like to have a Google search window in Google Chrome. Instead of Bing
    Seems kind of weird, having a Google Chrome Browser, and having to go to FF
    to use a Google search Window.
    I don't really care what Search Window is in IE the only time i use it is when I get a new computer, Or when I bring my computer back to factory settings, and that's because it's the only one available
    Even then I only use it once. To download and install FF, or Chrome.
    So thank you very much. Your suggestion was not in vain. ( or is it vane?).

    In Google Chrome left click the wrench & on the Basics Tab go to Options & click it.
    Go down to Search & you should have a drop down menu. Pick Google & it should work. :approve:

    For IE, simply click the tiny arrow next to the magnifying glass & choose Google. HTH :)
