21. Hit the "print screen" button
(next to F12 key) and then go into your paint program (Photoshop, Paint Shop Pro, or whatever) and create a document the size of your desktop resolution. Then "paste" into the new document to create the picture of the desktop. Save, upload and you're done.

28. Do what?
The screenie? Simply hit the Prt Scrn button by the F12 button. This action puts the screenshot in your clipboard. Then go to your photo manipulation program such as Photoshop, Ulead, Paint Shop Pro. Find the paste from Clipboard command and select. It pops up, save as a jpg or gif and then upload to a photo hosting site like Photobucket.com. Now simply paste the img tag in your message and voil.

20. I hate clutter on my desktop
Edited on Fri Jan-28-05 09:18 PM by hyphenate
So I put everything into a desktop folder and use it from there.

I've shrunk it down, but I have a 1028x768 resolution.
