PrintScreenKeyHere’s a helpful tip. If you’ve ever spent time trying to hand write (or draw) a lengthy error message on your computer, or convey an idea to someone regarding something that you see on your computer monitor. It’s called a screenshot and it’s very simple to do.

    1. It’s in the top right-hand corner of your keyboard – usually over the number pad
    2. Nothing appears to happen when you press it
  2. Open a clean MS Word document, or an e-mail
  3. Right-click in the body of your new document or message and select paste

It’s that easy!

I sometimes do this with my in-box and use it as a quick To-Do list.
