Here's a freebie I wrote. PrintDeskTop prints your screen.

[edit] Its probally best not to leave the hack up. Although a miss-placed textbox can hardly be considered a hack

Hey that's a great little util Swisher.
Anyone that remembers what the print-screen button used to do in dos, will love that.

When I first saw it I was thinking it was a typical screen capture program, which I have enough of those. This one sends the screen straight to the printer.

Great for when you just pull up some info from a web page and need to print is fast without printing the whole entire 9 web pages with it. I'll be using this one a lot.

Do you think you could make a shortcut key or a separate icon even, to send just the windows area to the printer? Like the Alt+PrintSceen does with a capture?

  • I'm afraid to do hack the web site, as GeoCities could kick me off (I think).

  • Also, I designed the site to never have any wording covered uo by the ads, even when resizing the browser window.

Any update suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Thanks, guys.

Yeah that's it. Like if you do an Alt+PrintScreen button it captures the active window to the clipboard, instead of the whole screen, except have it go to the printer.

Any chance of turning that into a snapshot utility?

No -- not a capture or snapshot utility. Will remain a print screen utility.

Kevlar:
I'm looking into the grabbing the active window, but no luck yet. I'll give a few days.
