    I've seen several members here (and numerous other boards) capture an image from a video game or a shot of their desktop. How do you guys do it? What program is needed? Thanks.

    If you have a Windows based PC, hit the "Prnt Scrn" button.

    Then open up Word Pad and Click, "Edit" then "Paste", then save it or print it out.

    Or use something like PrintKey Pro, which used to be free for download and let's you edit the screen shot first before saving or printing.
