There's a "Print Screen" button on the top right of the keyboard. Press that, than open "mspaint", paste it in there (CLT+V) than save it as a jpeg and attach it to email. What email client are you using?

On your Keyboard, press the "Print Screen / PrtScn" button.

Open up Microsoft Paint (Comes with Windows) and press Ctrl + V to paste

Save the file, and you're good as gold :)

Edit: Beaten to the chase :D That's what happens when I load up a ton of tabs and then reply to them one by one slowly ... :p

Select the window you want, press the Alt and Print Screen buttons, go to your new email, place the cursor where you want the picture and press the Ctrl and the "V" buttons :) :)

Snipping Tool

Way better than MS Paint method in my view.

I thought you meant as a direct paste screen shot, which I think don't seem to work with Gmail for example. If so then iclippy (http://www.labnol.org/software/screen-capture-tool-for-gmail/10457/), an online capture/storage tool, might help, without the need to save to PC.

Snipping tool doesn't come with XP though donread. You'd have to use Jing from Techsmith or something like that :)

Alt+printscreen is the way to improve the process, that way you only shoot the active window (if thats what you are trying to do)

The Snipping Tool is one of the best invtentions in Windows 7, I'm its biggest fan!

I use Zscreen to make cropped shots. It's freeware and works on Win7.

To email a shot of part of my screen I go ctrl-printscreen to bring up a special cursor (with a magnifying glass to allow precise positioning). I then drag a rectangle over the required area and release. This puts a jpg on the clipboard or direct into a photo editor (your choice). I resize the jpg to be within 800 x 600 pixels and save it as a jpg with 'low' settings - giving a file of about 60 kB for emailing
