Bud...when you hit the Print Screen button when you are showing your desktop... After doing that, open up Paint. After opening Paint click on Edit, Paste. This will then show your desktop in Paint. Then click on File, Save As. Type in the file name and right underneath that click on th ebutton that says File Type. Save as a JPG. I'll attach pics. BMP's or BitMaps are too large to post. JPEG's or JPG's are smaller resolution and easier to post.







BTW...I forgot to post my desktop so here it is

/\thats why I call 95/98 Windoze. XP is a lot better, but requires more RAM. 256mb is minimum to run decent, I run 512 and it seems to be pretty good.

And then delete all the icons on your desktop and set the picture of your desktop as the backgound...see what happens when somebody else tries to click on the icons, they will think there is something seriously wrong with your computer.

/\right-click and go to new>folder and put the icons in there, and you can move that someplace where they prolly won't find it. (95% off the screen)

I had to reduce the images by 50% as my screen resolution on both machines is 1920 x 1200 (the Mac has two monitors, total desktop res of 3840 x 1200)... I love my G5!

Nope, I have a pc and a mac. I hate the pc, love the mac.
