I just bought a new logitech keypad and wireless mouse and I can't figure out how to take the image I see on the screen (say a page on ebay) and save it so I can send it to someone else. I have tried hitting the "print screen/SysRq" button and nothing happens. Any ideas? I have windows ME (sorry) and an hp pavillion.

Hit Print Screen again, then open Paintbrush with the menu or by clicking START->RUN and typing "pbrush" in the text field. Once paintbrush is open, hit ctrl-V to paste just as if it were text, and it will print the screenshot to the canvas. From there you can save as bitmap, but even better wouldbe to paste into photoshop and save as jpg, or reopen the bitmap later in photoshop, and save as jpg. BMP's are effin HUGE! (each pixel has a grid ID, data out the ass). Print Screen key commits it to clipboard just as if it were text you copied.......
