How Do I Make A Screen Capture?

Fri Jan 16, 2004 11:14 pm

How can I capture what is displayed on my computer screen and turn it into an image file?

I am not talking about saving individual images, but rather the entire contents of a screen. I know it can be done, as for example, screen captures have been shown of these forums where one person has started dozens of topics in as many minutes (and has subsequently been banned).
