Dear Sassy: I am creating a PowerPoint presentation and would like to use screen captures of web pages. What would be the best way to accomplish this?
~Screen Captured via the Web

Dear Screen: Hmmm, Sassy had to test this one out first before responding. First, open up your Internet browser to the web page that you would like in your presentation. On your keyboard locate the F11 key and press it. This will maximize your viewing area for the web page. Next, press the ALT key and the Print Screen key at the same time. This will capture the active window. Open up your PowerPoint presentation and paste (Ctrl V) the screen capture into a blank slide. If you need to crop any of the image in your PowerPoint slide you can Right click on the image and click on Format Picture. To return your web page viewing area back to its normal state, press the F11 key again.
