Bernice: You should have a key on your keyboard normally to the right of the F12 key that says Print Screen....
Once you have pushed that button it will store a picture of whats on your screen. If i remember rightly in XP you will then have to open Paint or a similar program and Paste it into there, then you can save.
Just in case you didnt know XP is long out of date now & Microsoft do not provide any backup or support for it

Any programmers here that is familiar with BK? Those that I knew that could of been of assistance, like toedder, mctrivia & hexkid are no longer here at BK. I have some questions and maybe a deal that I could offer you if BK is sold as planned. Nothing etched in stone but I would like to know if anyone is interested in technical support.

ketchuplover: Thought a while aout that and am still not sure what to think. Because it feels right what you say, but I am asking myself how to handle for example books. Lets say you sold a book about chess strategy one day and twenty years later you do not agree with yourself any more. Do you have the right to make all owners of your book put it into the dustbin?

What is with newspapers and any printed item in the worlds archives?

...and so on...

I would recommend converting to linux. Zorin OS 8 is an easy distro to use as it looks like windows. Free, will run easily on older computers and faster than windows.
