    They go to the clipboard. You can paste the screenshot to any program you like.

    That's just the little tip I needed to unleash the full powers of the print screen!

    Now I have opened a paradox within this very thread, and now have potentially initiated the implosion of the universe!


    Sorry for the unbridled and unwarranted enthusiasm, but that post was all I needed to finally fulfill my wish of proper use of the print screen button, and now with a little impromptu attachment magic, paradoxes of universally imploding proportions! MWUAHAHAHAHA....heheheheheh-hoo!

    (Thanks Nodsu.)

    This may really blow you away! To just capture the uppermost (read 'top') screen, hold down the Alt key with PrtScn. Occasionally you may have to do it a couple of times because it'd all in the timing, but when you get it, just Ctrl+V where you want it.
