Hello. I decided to make this tutorial because some people are complete n00bs at computers or they just don't know how to capture a screenshot to show off pictures of Zelda mods or something. So this tutorial will show you how to take a screenshot of your computer screen. Let's get started.

NOTE: THIS TUTORIAL IS FOR MICROSOFT WINDOWS XP OPERATING SYSTEMS AND ABOVE ONLY!



WINDOWS XP:

-Make sure that what you wanna capture in the screenshot is being displayed on your screen.

-Hold the 'alt' key and press 'print screen' which is usually located above the backspace key. If you cannot find 'print screen' then the terms should be shortened to 'prt sc' or 'print scn' or something else abbreviated to mean 'print screen'.

-Now open up Microsoft Paint. (If you cannot find Paint then hold the Windows logo key located near the space bar and press the R key. The run command prompt should appear and type in Paint. The Run Command will close and Paint should open up. If not please leave a complaint for me so I can help).

-With Paint opened, right click and press paste. CTRL + V is also a paste shortcut. Your screenshot will appear.

-Now go to File>Save As... and name your screenshot.

-Choose the desired saving location for the file and click Save.


WINDOWS VISTA:

-Make sure to have exactly what you want captured being displayed.

-Hold the alt key and press the print screen key. It is usually located above the Backspace key.

-Now your screenshot is saved in your pictures folder.


WINDOWS 7:


-Make sure to have exactly what you want captured being displayed.

-Hold the alt key and press the print screen key. It is usually located above the Backspace key.

-Now your screenshot is saved in your pictures folder.



WINDOWS 8:


-Make sure to have exactly what you want captured being displayed.

-Hold the Windows logo key and press the print screen key. It is usually located above the Backspace key.

-Now your screenshot is saved in your pictures folder.

As some of you may know, I have left the rom editing scene, never to return. I will be attending UNL. I will also be getting a job, so I will not have the time to run a community and make all of these projects.

I'm leaving you all in good hands. Sylux102, one of the best Maco staff members, will be carrying on in my stead. His forums are on Zelda64.net. Register there, since this website is archive only.

As for OoT 2D and Izou, I will be leaving those in the hands of GodsTurf's team, Lunar World. If you are fans of these projects, subscribe to them.
