    Not really. That would be the thin edge of the edge.

    If it went reasonably well, they might try and apply to all os. In addition to all the other tracking/targeting/renting stuff they are trying to hook users into. Not easy to see how they would get away with that, but best not to give them any ideas.

    Even though you HG, do not understand how others can use the dinosaur, there are those that can not understand how you use Eight. Many do not need the latest technology to run their business nor live their lives.
    Well said, a XP machine can handle a large variety of tasks in a home or small business office. I particularly have older rigs running XP and they perform well in the whole scene. Of course all my newer rigs run Win 7 and/or Win 8.1, but my XP rigs will still be alive for quite some time before being retired.

    Yes, Snipping tool is included in 7. I know it wasn't in XP. Not sure about Vista. Print Screen > Open pic edit program > paste > save. What I meant was as in my post #123 where I explained + Print Screen key = picture file (and saved to folder) all in one operation, not in 4. Much more advanced.

    Vista and Win7


    Vista had the snipping tool, but you had to enable the tablet functions (who knows why). Prt Scrn works the same in Win7. You print the screen and use the paste button in Paint to show it. There you can edit it, make comments, arrows, etc. In 8.1 it is easier to store but then you have more work to post edit it.

    I use Jing anyway. That's a lot nicer and has more function including automatic uploads.

    Wow, so that's the reason people should use the joke OS that is Windows 8? You can use the Windows + Print Screen key to save a screen shot??? Lol, really? First I would never even want to do this because I always crop the image I'm saving. But whatever, we really are scrapping the bottom of the barrel here trying to find reasons to use 8 aren't we?

    Alt+Print screen for active window and Ctrl+Print screen for whole desktop still works like before.

    Would not even consider using Windows Xp due to security concerns regardless.

    Yes though true, some people ought to read most of the posts in a thread before commenting. At least a page anyway.

    Coke, if you have security concerns, you should not use any Windows. For the internet, use Mint Mate like me. It is a really nice system.

    I use snipping tool. Like Windows 8 just fine. Don't use start screen or new apps at all. I use win8 on new devices that come with it, but I have left my existing win7 boxes alone as I don't have a need to spend money to upgrade.
