Hi Mary, we assume you mean Windows 7. I know what you mean about remembering how to do things  :-)

Here are the directions:

-Have the screen ready that you want to grab.

-Go to the 'start' button, then to 'accessories'  and click on 'snipping tool'.

-Follow the prompts.

Let me know if this is what you wanted.

Hi Mary:

I really like your idea about the "November Plain Jane Challenge" .  I'll try to knit as many as I can by the end of the month.  I'll let you know how it goes.  Happy knitting!!
