    here is what you do..

    hit printscreen.

    this will copy the screenshot to your clipboard.

    open ms paint. "start>run>mspaint.exe"
    click on edit> paste

    this should paste the image into mspaint.. click file>save as and save your pic.

    So you tried to print screen and then copy + paste the image in Microsoft's paint program?

    Urban beat me to the punch! :)
