Open a new Mspaint and press paste ^^
You may need to move it up by the corners so that can't see the whiteness of the paint background.
Then just SAVE ^^;

thank you koji for your info biggrin

well im going to try this and i thank you for your hard work.

Dear your wonderful! i was able to find out what was wrong. it seems my laptop keyboard is special. see because it has limited keys on it some of the keys share three functions. and the print screen was like that. and that option can only be used by a special key that lets you use the third option.
so yeah i was able to do it then. now. i need to know how i get that image that i saved here. do i hook it via photo bucket? or is there a special way to do it.

well there is another way if you're too lazy to upload in photobucket if there's a specific image you like from internet.

here's an example: go here
