    Hello,

    I used to be able to copy a screen shot and paste it into Word/Outlook, etc
    by hitting "prtscn" (or ALT-prtscn), then CTRL-V in the application I wanted
    to paste it into. But for some reason the last few weeks this isn't working
    anymore. I have even tried copying the screen shot for this question I am
    typing right now, and it isn't working. When I go to paste it into Word,
    nothing happens. Can anyone help me figure out how to fix this? I am on
    Office XP, Word/Outlook/Excel 2003.

    Thanks,
    Tricia

    it. Please ignore my post.

    Thanks.
