    [quote name='StuartR' post='781558' date='24-Jun-2009 21:39']I am very happy with the version of Faststone screen capture. The last freeware version was V5.3 and this can be downloaded from a number of sites, including aplusfreeware.[/quote]

    I would like to say a big thanks to all who posted suggestions in this thread as what I have learned makes capturing screen shots or part of one so much easier than using the Prt Scr key on the keyboard then using Photo Editor to save as a jpg. The one I at random plumped for was that suggested by StuartR which I -as a silver surfer that gropes with this IT stuff constantly- found so user friendly. I don't doubt that some of the others are just as easy to use but as the one below seems to do what I want, I think I will stick with it. By the way gents, where can the imoticon of the man bashing his head with a hammer be accessed? [Can't see it on the lounge selection] Many thanks gentlemen. Dave.

    Check out Index of Smilies. The one you're asking about is STUPIDME.GIF. You can scroll the list, click one and see if it's the one you want before you "copy" the link to it.

    [quote name='HansV' post='782404' date='30-Jun-2009 03:03']Snagit, FastStone Capture and Hyperionics HyperSnap can all capture a scrolling window such as a web page or Word document.[/quote]

    It was a little hard to follow the thread, but I decided to try Irfanview, which is familiar, and I am still struggling.

    What I want is a full display (both scroll right and scroll down) of the details view of Revo Uninstall, which will give me a full inventory of all installed programs. This is under XP Home, which I haven't much for some time. I want it once and only once, so freeware or trial is preferable. I may just transcribe it from the table to Word, since the programs for which I need the data are limited, but that strikes me as an example many might have a use for. (For all I know Revo has it built in.)

    I had a look at Revo and it appears that a "save report to file" feature is sadly missing. I managed to do a vertically (only) scrolling capture of the window, using SnagIt (commercial software). There are a couple of things that come to mind. First, do you want a text copy or just a picture?

    In order to capture all the columns, it might be possible to temporarily change your screen resolution as well as manually drag column widths to "best fit", as in Excel. Also, have you taken a look at Belarc Advisor - Free Personal PC Audit? It may not provide all the info you're after, but does save a report to HTML file.

    If you want, I'll have a further play with Revo and see what I can concoct.

    I think this is an example of a problem that may arise in any number of contexts that lend themselves to poster-sized displays. Revo just happens to give a highly detailed account of exactly what you have, and if you adjust the columns properly the result is picture-perfect. For that reason it may be something we can kick around a bit to see just what the various programs are capable of.

    One possible solution, if you want a printout, is to gather a collection of images, print them, and then literally cut and paste (= tape) the printed output to provide a single sheet. As you pointed out, many or most programs have a feature that will let you print straight from the program, but Revo is freeware to begin with, and a superb example at that. The normal output for something like AutoCad is going to be drawing size in hard copy.

    In my present case, the simplest answer is to resort to pen and pad. I want certain data (for migration purposes to Win 7) so it's no big deal, but there are certainly printers that are capable of poster-sized printouts, and you don't have to buy one to to use it; the price per print at the local print facility makes occasional use worthwhile.

    Huh? As you can see from the list of programs that you quote, IrfanView, respectable as it may be, is NOT among those that can capture a scrolling window.
    FastStone Capture (including the last free version) can capture a scrolling window with both horizontal and vertical scroll bars into a single large picture.

    All done in the blink of an eye.

    My apologies and my thanks to Hans and to Stuart. The program works superbly, it does precisely what I wanted done, and it did so in a matter of minutes after I read Hans's post and installed it. I think my problem was that I interpreted the post regarding Irfanview to apply this condition, as it was subsequent to the others. This is a new-to-me and extremely valuable utility.

    I try to keep the number of utilities on my PC to a minimum, but I find Faststone Capture so useful that I've paid for the registered version.

    A postscript. Since I've used Revo for a long time and it WOULD be a nice tool in making the Gold version clean install of Windows 7 in October, I've written to Vladimir to ask the "export" question, including whether there is a place in the registry or hard drive that Revo stores the list WHILE running. I searched and can't find anything on my own.

    I know there are lots of ways to get a list, including Belarc, but I kinda like the Revo format. So, I'll let you know if he answers...
