How to capture a screen picture of your form

This will work on the lab computers and on most other computers. When you have your form finished you will take a 'screen shot'. This takes a picture of everything on your screen. To do this press ctrl + 'Print Screen'; make sure the form is completely visible. On some computers it is ctrl + prtsc. The print screen button is usually in the upper right corner of the keyboard. Next press ctrl + esc and type 'Paint' it will be highlighted and click enter. The paint program will appear. If that does not work go to Start >> all programs >> type 'Paint' in the input box.

Go to the 'Paste' tab drop down menu (upper left) and click 'Paste' you will see a picture of your screen. Next click on the 'Select' button with the dotted rectangle. The cursor will become crosshairs. Drag a rectangle around your form so it looks like the one above but with the different title. Click 'Crop'. Go to the upper left corner of 'Paint' and click the dark blue dropdown menu and save the cropped image. Paste it into the proper PowerPoint slide.
