    My understanding is you can't, unless you make use of a program like Hardcopy (see the Software forum for various options).
    Pressing 'PrintScreen' copes the entire screen into the clipboard - you can then paste it into Word.
    'Alt-PrintScreen' copies the active window to the clipboard.

    You can in a pure W95 MS Install (without aftermarket products) by pressing "PrintScrn" and then pasting into MSPaint. You only get to play with a bitmap as a result.

    Don't know if this will help but instead of using print screen, use 'my computer' or windows explorer. You can copy and paste information from the address box which wil pick up drive and folder names. If it's a file only, select (from desktop or explorer) and press F2 (rename mode) and you can copy and paste from there.

    You can easily print file names by dropping out to DOS, switching to the subdirectory of interest and entering the command:

    DIR > LPT1

    This pipes everything that would normally be on the screen to the printer. I don't know what you would use if you have a USB printer.
