The How To and Uses Of

Print Key

 

Print Key is a very useful tool to have on your computer even when you donít use it for what we use it for.  It can be used to take screen shots of websites, pictures, and documents, anything you want.  You can do many things with this program. 

 

Microsoft Vista has itís own print program called Snipping Tool.  Go to Programs / Accessories / Snipping Tool.  This is also very easy to use.  Just click on it, and your mouse turns into a big plus sign (+).  If it doesnít, click new and choose Rectangular.  The picture will then fade and will highlight the part you want to copy.  Drag your cursor by right clicking your mouse across the picture to crop it to the size you want it.  When you let go of the mouse button, you will then have the picture you want.  Click the 3rd button from the left and click save.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

League Use

 

Anytime thereís a dispute in a game room or a nasty member, non member always take a print of it and email it to our Head Admin.  If you see another league in one of our game rooms, get a print of it.   Itís very important to have this proof if we ever need to report anyone for any reason.

 

Game Rooms

 

Sometimes itís a little tricky taking screen shots in Pogo.  In most cases you need to take more than one shot.  Whether you are in private chat or in the lobby with a staff member of the other league, screen print it all.  If you move the bar up thatís below the names in the ďWhoís HereĒ list, you will be able to get more in the picture.

Making a New File Folder

 

Try to download all screen prints in a separate file folder and name it whatever game you might be in, other league name, or memberís name.  If you donít have time to make a new folder at the time of the issue, you can always make one later and move the prints into there.  To make a new folder, Right click on your desk top or in your documents or picture folder.  Click New, Click Folder, then type a name in the place thatís highlighted with New Folder then press enter.
