    Evilpig..how did you get the Mac toolbar for Windows..I WANT THAT!!!
     
  4. I would, but i dont know how.
     
  5. I would but its embarassing (tons of kinda old and obscure video games).
     
    • The first step is to create the windows that you want to capture and leave them up on the screen.
    • Just to the right of your keyboard, you should see three groups of keys. The lower set of keys usually is a group of arrow keys. Above that is usually a set of some six keys that are labeled "Insert," "Home," "Page Up," etc. Above that should be three keys that have rather odd labels - like Pause/Break and ScrLk. One of those keys should be labeled PrtScrn/SysRq. Pressing Alt-PrintScreen (Alt-PrtScrn) places an image of the frontmost window on the clipboard. Pressing PrintScreen by itself places an image of the entire desktop on the clipboard.
    • If you press PrtScrn/SysRq, nothing will appear to have happened. However, your computer just took a snapshot of its screen and stored that picture on its clipboard, much as it stores information that you cut and paste.
    • Open MS-Paint. (From Start/Run, issue the command "mspaint".) Create a new empty image, and use Edit/Paste to bring in the screenshot you just took. (If the screenshot is smaller than the default Paint canvas, you will end up with white areas. Start over: create a new empty image, change its dimensions to 1x1, and Paste again. The canvas will grow for the Paste, but it doesn't shrink.)
    • Use MS-Paint to Save As, using PNG as the file format (it is superior to all the rest).

    *notice the post your desktop minimized window:D
     
  14. Nice whiteninja wallpaper. :D

    I'm gonna download that toolbar and give it a shot, it looks pretty sweet and I probably have enough RAM to run it.

    Anyway, this is my background:

    I kinda made it look like a mac. :D
     
  15. I use YZdock, or rocket dock.

    they are both better then object dock imo
