Window capture doesn't Alt-PrtSc

I have read accounts of the present and some even saying that HP computers (it was perhaps laptops) do not have this function.  Seems odd that a function of operating system level can be excluced by the host hardware platform, although I'm sure it's possible.  It does not make sense.

In any case, I do not have an HP, I have a Toshiba Satellite A660.

I know that I can use the Snipping Tool, but it's less convenient than simply by pressing Alt-print.

Definitely can someone confirm if Windows 7 took away this feature?  I have read accounts of the function in my search, but who knows, maybe Microsoft torpedoed the function updated.  For some reason which I am not aware.

You answer worked for me, Tommy.  Thank you!  Now the world can find (funny how that has not displayed in my search).

Well, that's the platform (and manufacturer) specific and has nothing to do with what operating system you are using.  On my Dell, the Fn button is orange (orange text, I mean) and all the keys which has a function of distinct when color orange Fn key function text in orange.  My PRTSCRN button is orange.  ;-)

Happy that you guessed it sorted.

    There is no bar in WLMail 2011 and 2012. What version do you use? The last version to work under XP (this forum) is WLMail 2009 and having a Menu bar with file on it.
    If you transfer to a more recent machine...
    In Outlook Express, compact you files first.

    Click Outlook Express at the top of the the folder tree so no folders are open. Then: File | Work offline (or double-click on work online in the status bar). File | Folder | Compact all folders. Don't touch anything until the compacting is completed.
    Transfer of data from Outlook Express and Windows Live Mail:

    For Messages:

    Copy the * ENTIRE * OE message store folder to a flash drive. (Folders.dbx must be included). Place it on the desktop or another location on the computer using WLMail.
    V-2009: open WLMail and: file | Import | Messages | Microsoft Outlook Express 6, and the point where it was saved.

    V-2011/2012: Menu button. Import Messages. Microsoft Outlook Express 6, and the point where it was saved.

    Location of OE message store:

    In OE: Tools | Options | Maintenance | Store folder will reveal the location of your Outlook Express files. Note the location and navigate on it in Explorer Windows or, copy and paste in start | Run.

    In Windows XP the OE User (DBX and WAB) are by default marked as hidden. To view these files in Windows Explorer, you must enable Show hidden files and folders under start | Control Panel | Folder Options icon | Opinion, or in Windows Explorer. Tools | Folder options | View.

    Note: If any DBX file is over 300 MB, return to OE and move some messages from the folder related to a new user created folder and compact down the size of the file.

    For addresses:

    Open the address book in OE and file | Export | Address book (wab) and save it to the desktop. Copy it to a flash drive. Place it on the desktop or another location on the computer using WLMail.

    Note: If you use a CD or a DVD instead of a flash drive, after placing on the new machine you must remove the read-only attribute in the properties before you import.

    For the account settings:

    In OE: Tools | Accounts, select the account and export it to the desktop. This will be an .iaf file. Copy it to the new desktop computer.

  • Windows 7 doesn't remember the folder views.

    original title: Windows 7 doesn't remember the folder views. Microsoft is pathetic.

    Once more, I find it quite pathetic that Microsoft Windows 7 as Vista, such as Windows XP and all other operating systems M$ has developed can not EVEN remember the layout for the records.

    What is THE POINT of having more customization options in solution for users to set, Explorer if your code Explorer STUPID don't even BOTHER to remember. Users bother to customize their desktops and file only to discover that their work is broken as soon as the PC restarts or in Windows 7 Decides to forget or to crush stuff in the registry.

    It is also pathetic that M$ has removed most of the "individual" customization of Windows XP folder now opt for a "point of view fits all approach!". (Ie the deletion of the folder option "View tab / remember this layout of records"). I can't decide if a file opening should have the "Navigation bar" to the left. Now, if a folder has the navigation bar, hey look, ALL MY FILES open with the navigation bar now! Yay! NOT.

    Even with this, HE has YET to forget every customization that you made to your files!

    Things going on in my head when I'm on Windows 7:

    Mmmm. I'd like my account to have this icon or bitmap image please. There we go, very nice. Reset. Mmmm. Why is he returned to show all the file type icons in this new folder. Oh God, worst yet! NOW ALL MY FILES ARE RETURNED TO THE DETAILS VIEW. B * llocks, I've spent hours a lot, a lot, a lot (over time) establishing this batch! Gee thanks to shake me more M$. You've obviously spent a lot of money and many hours asking your BETA users which would p * ss them off the most when you use Windows Explorer. Voice of tester beta geek: "uh Yes, I think I was very p * ssed if all of a sudden he returned for more details on all my folders in Explorer. Microsoft: "OK, we're going to take care to include that then...". "Everything what is p * ss you off." Geek: "Yes, while your at it, if the navigation bar appears on EVERY issue and doesn't even have a shortcut key, so I had to reach for my mouse and go to a menu rather than quickly display and hiding cases of need, which would probably be p * ss me off really bad." Microsoft: ' hey this is a great idea!

    Folder view settings should be remembered INDIVIDUALLY for the love of God, on a folder by folder basis.

    I think that the removal of this option, and becomes the fact that Microsoft have removed code rather that actually fixing the code first place is a sign of how pathetic software from Microsoft.

    I hope Apple start to develop their PC rather than just Apple Mac operating system sometime in the future.

    It will ultimately be the nail in the coffin for Micro$ and personally, I'll be happy to see the back of them.

    I'm a PC and I am upset that Microsoft Windows Explorer doesn't bother to remember how I presented my files.

    If you want to know what I'm talking about m $ look the Apple Mac operating system and copy what they do (you know, the usual).
    At least they seem to know what I'm talking about.

    If you think I'm the only one who is upset at this by the way:

    21.5 million users would disagree with you.


    To have a folder and its subfolders all use the same view model AND having the view model to reflect the disposal of one of the folders.


    First, you must realize that Win7 treats these two very different applications:

    1. make subfolders use the same model from view as the parent folder.

    2 configure how a view model is laid out.

    My confusion is I thought that changing the layout of the folder parent by clicking on 'Apply to subfolders' it applies to the layout of the parent folder, but all it's means "all look to the model of display as well as the parent folder.

    Understand that when you say "optimize this folder for: * music *" IT IS NOT AUTOMATICALLY CHANGE THE LAYOUT of the folder! Only it it's a music folder (or general or images or other) and ALL TIME NOW ON the time the * music model is changed (via right click on any * music folder > organize menu > folder and search options > view tab > apply to records) THEN the layout PAGE ONLY will be updated.

    So unfortunately, Xaero_Payne solution by itself will result in the 'problem' that everyone here seems to have. You do BOTH steps to make it work. (I know it's easy to chatting about M$, but instead of pi$ $ in the wind at home, we can as well get into their heads and understand how to use what we have).


    You can do these two processes in any order, but I want to do such as this, because I can then more easily see changes. For the example below, I'll do their music files and I'll apply the Details view template.

    R process: make subfolders using same view model

    Right-click on the Parent folder that contains all of the subfolders > properties > Customize tab > check also apply... subfolders > select * music * (for this example) > apply then OK

    Process 1: Customize and apply the provision of fashion model music

    Find or create a folder you want to use the view model.

    Select them * details * view (or list, large icons, etc.) and then customize the layout as you wish. Add new desired columns and rearrange them as you like.

    Organize the menu > folder options and research > display tab > apply to records. THIS MAY BE THE MOST IMPORTANT OF THIS PROCESS because otherwise he doesn't know you want ALL the * music * files to be like this.

  • Alternative to Command + SHIFT + 4 more like Windows capture tool?

    Before starting my work, I had only used Mac computers, so I'm very familiar with the CMD-SHIFT-4/3 option to take screenshots. However, for my work, I need to take a lot of selective screenshots in quick succession, including the CMD + SHIFT + 4 does not lend itself to the same way that the tool captures Windows (difficult to sort through all the images on one's Desktop without taking the extra time to label each). Does anyone know of an app, Chrome extension or another tool on the Mac that better mimics the tool captures, which allows to easily take a selective screenshot, paste, and start over without the extra step of traction frame on the desktop?

    FWIW, command + control + Shift + 4 to create a selection, and then copy it to the Clipboard.

    Command + control + Shift + 3 copies the entire screen to the Clipboard.

  • PrintScreen of Windows 7 doesn't work does not correctly

    Not sure if it is in the correct category but... I downloaded Windows 7 Pro 64 - bit from my school DreamSpark account and installed on my computer, which is pretty old about 5-6 years.  There should not be anything wrong with the copy of Windows, it is not a debug or whatever it is, it's just the regular retail copy.  Almost everything works fine except for a few small quirks/bugs.  First of all, I can't preview images using the Windows Viewer, it displays simply all the rectangles fully black images.  However, if I open an image to preview in Image Viewer, and then click full screen/slide show then it displays the images as should be in full screen.  And then exit fullscreen Gimme the picture in black and white.  Not a particularly serious issue just annoying really.  In addition, perhaps in relationship I guess, I recently discovered that my Windows PrintScreen does not work.  When I hit PrintScreen, or any variation of the PrintScreen key combination, it captures just a large black rectangle, as if my entire screen showed only in black.  I tried to paste my Clipboard into Paint and Photoshop and both give me a black monitor rectangle size, it's really weird.  I even tried a third-party screen capture software and it's the same thing and I can't find anything even close to relevant on the internet.  Anyone have any ideas, anything is appreciated.

    Another separate problem: when I turn on my computer, it will sometimes, not often but enough times to be meaningful, decide to not turn it on and recognize my keyboard and I have to restart and I hope that he do it again.

    Last thing, I swear (I should probably do different missions).  My computer, as in my windows, does not sleep properly.  Sometimes, he won't in the mode 'sleep' and every time I try and wake him up it gives me a white, white I think, screen instead of the login screen.  If I press space to unlock my computer, because there is no password, it will take me on my desk but he will not recognize my internet connection ethernet or my desktop speakers and I have to restart my computer to get these features.  Once again a lot of what I think are really weird problems.  Any ideas on any of my problems is greatly appreciated.

  • Installation of Windows 7 doesn't recognize Seagate ST3500418AS

    Installation of Windows 7 does not recognize the hard drive. When I get to the step of the installation where he asks "which type of installation do you want" and I click on custom, it does not include the hard drive on the list. If I click on "Advanced", nothing appears in this list. And he asks a driver?  He asks which driver? And where can I down load it?

    Program: Windows 7 Professional

    Hard drive: Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 (Seagate ST3500418AS). It's a 3.5 "SATA 7200 rpm 3 G

    CPU: AMD Phenom II Black Edition (multi-Core processor)

    I read the forum here and elsewhere on issues others have had to install Windows 7 on a Seagate hard drive. But I need for clarification on exactly which driver I need and where I can down load it.

    Thank you.

    The first thing to check would be to see if the BIOS recognizes the drive.  If it isn't, then it is impossible for Windows to do.  If it doesn't, check the wiring, maybe try a different power and SATA on the motherboard.  If she agrees, I could get hold of stand-alone Seagate diagnostics and see what they say.  If this player has been used for anything other than Windows in the past, it could be that he just needs to be formatted.  If it is brand new and the BIOS recognizes, it might be that you have just a faulty disk.  It's rare, but sometimes it happens.

    I hope this helps.  Good luck.

  • Window.opener doesn't work

    I have a site that seems just broke the 18 or 18.0.1 release. The specific code that is breaking is a call to window.opener.
    The error I see in the console says: TypeError: window.opener.Assignments is not defined

    I checked this with IE and FF on our test servers as well as our comparison Server (running launches the latest version of the code) and they all have the same problem is not something that has changed in our code base.

    Can someone tell me why there are errors javascript calls to window.opener with the latest version and how I can work around this problem?

    I think I found the answer to my own question. In case somebody stumbles on it and it's useful.

    I think the problem was that the code calls window.opener.form when it appears in firefox, you must call window.opener.document.form. Since both work in FF and IE and it seems there are only a few places in the code where we aren't calling window.opener.document I'll just update the code to do this.
