When a message is posted on the PC of some fault or other how does one copy that to post on here on PC help for people's perusal ?

I generally use the old cut and paste method unless it is a picture then It gets al little more complex.

This might give you some idea as to how to embed some stuff.

There's a print screen button on the keyboard for screen captures.
Or do what my sister does, take a photo on the phone and post that:D

I use Irfanview in conjunction with print screen, it let's you draw a box around anything on screen transfer it to Irfanview then use it as you wish. I use two monitors so can drag and drop certain things from screen to Irfanview.
As Quaver says a camera can be useful have used it a few times.

Most windows based computers from recent years will already come with "Snipping Tool" loaded , (All programmes / search/snipping tool)
The main problem with just using the keyboard printscreen button is the low image quality making it difficult to read .

Here's it in use using part of KF's FAQ

If you like, Charles, I have an old abandonware Paint program which has a "Capture screen" option. It captures the screen into the Paint program, so that you can edit it, before you save it, if you need to.
