    If anyone can explain how you go about that it would be much appreciated.
    Press Print Screen key.
    Paste into Windows Paint.
    Save as png file.
    Desktop is a good location for temporary images.
    There are some screenshot tutorials in my signature below.

    Click on my screenshot several times to see it get bigger:

    I just learned something new.
    This would be good for taking multiple screenshots, without having to open Paint over & over for each new image.
    Very useful.

    Thanks to medab1 for pointing me to the tutorials re posting screenshots.

    Isn't that the way though. You tend to read the instructions or tutorials after trying something (and failing), instead of before.

    Hopefully this time you can expand it to see it in more detail.

    Now that's better, your previous screen shot was OK, the trick to see it at full res was right click on the picture, then click "Open image in new tab" or something like that. <-- It was google chrome.
