    Hi

    When I go in Dos fullscreen mode, and press prtScrn, the output I get in Word is not an image. Whatever text was on the screen, appears as a text, and not in any image form. Also, no colours (which were present in the exe file which I ran in dos mode) appeared.

    Can't I get the same output in Dos mode as I do in Window mode? Help Please!

    Warm regards
    Mr V

    I've noticed the same problem when I'm watching a DVD on my laptop and then do a print screen and try to paste it somewhere.

    In the old days the print screen button would send an image to the printer to be printed, not copied to memory.

    Have you tried alt-prtscr ?

    I just pasted the dos command box into word with that key combination.
