Re: NEW Special Competition !!

I could never see the point in having a desktop picture - 'serves no useful purpose'
I think I have said that before somewhere

Guess it can sort of reflect your personality Margaret ... we could have done it the other way around .. trying to guess who's is what

Mine is slightly boring I'm afraid ... will have a go.

Re: NEW Special Competition !!

Remember all those desktop themes you tried when you got your 1st PC
There were jungle themes with monkeys swinging off the cursor
Does anyone (in their right mind) still use them?

PS so my personality is a grey blank page
that is being enigmatic

Re: NEW Special Competition !!

I can't do this either, can get it into word, but not sure what to do after that ? Do I put it in another file? as can't find it when I browse. I did put it into 'My Pictures', and think it was uploading, took ages and said send was successful, but not there !

Not even sure was loading the correct thing anyway

Re: NEW Special Competition !!

Well I'm gonna have a go at this. I was able to take a screen shot of my last five desktop images as I only use photo's I've taken. Usually change once a month on average.

Re: NEW Special Competition !!

It was easy Katex. Can't understand why you can't do it.
Is your prt scr button in a box?? If so, when you use the prt scr button you have to press the fn button at the same time. The fn button is bottom left next to the ctrl key.
It is easy in Paint. After doing fn / prt scr (*at the same time) , Just open Paint and do ctrl / v * and it will appear. Go to Save As and save as whatever title the pic is to be called. Then upload to your hearts content!!

I've done all that too and though it tells me that my pic has uploaded successfully, there is nothing in the gallery to prove it........I have given up trying now.

I know just how you are feeling Margaret .. have now got large glass of wine.
Believe me, I am a numpty !

Decreased the size first in Paint Shop pro (although may not have been necessary) .. and changed to JPEG (if not already) which I discovered you have to go to File, drop down to Editor >>> hit the JPEG, change to size by hitting that little button on the left between the two images and then put it in the file you use ... like 'My pictures' and upload as you normally do.
Mind you, put one in Members Gallery by mistake ...
