    Print Pulldown Menus (Office XP)

    Is there a way for me to print the pulldown menus?

    You can use PrintScreen to put a copy of the screen on the clipboard. You can paste the picture as a whole into a Word document, or paste, then edit/crop it in any graphics editor, such as Paint.

    Is that what you mean?

    Sorry Hans - another senior moment I guess. I kept trying to use the Alt Print Screen - don't know why - just a knothead I guess. Anyway - thanks again for saving me from myself. Works like a charm, of course.

    Happy Holidays to you and yours

    Aunt Linda 1--

    There are probably several ways, but I don't think I'm coming up with the best one. Without involving 3rd party and something you buy, you can always just use Paint or Photo Editor--I used Paint here and it took 30 seconds but it's more awkward than some 3rd parties. You certainly could use any of scores of free "screen capture grabbers" that work well and are free like Irfranview which is universally popular and has more functionality than good 'ole MS Paint. All you have to do once you have the image is hit File Print--obviously they are going to show up better if you color print them.

    There are also apps like

    Any Screen Capture 3.09 Download Here

    I have tried simply keeping the pulldown displayed and going to File>Print but I can't come up with the keyboard combination if there is one that does this. Maybe someone can. Hopefully some other ways will show up.

    Just plain 'ole print screen was perfect. Zapped it into Word - I teach an Excel class to adults and wanted to use some visuals of what's on the various menus for my students.

    Thanks for the reply and Happy Holiday to you and yours

    This might be too late to help, but... if the menu can be opened using Alt, you can use Alt+PrintScrn. Here's an example with the File menu:
    <UL><LI>Press and hold Alt
    <LI>Press f to open the menu
    <LI>(Optional) Use the arrow keys to position the highlight bar, if desired
    <LI>Press PrintScrn to capture the application window
    <LI>Release Alt[/list]Usually faster than trimming a full-screen capture. Unfortunately it doesn't work with right-click menus.

    This worked just fine as well. Cool - now I know how to do this 2 different ways. I'll be sharing this info with my students tonight. Thanks a bunch!

    Happy Holidays to you and yours

    Thanks for that. I had gotten the idea that you could hold a menu open for a screen shot or a print including some of the Windows slide outs, by holding down shift or a cominatino of shift and another key, but this hasn't panned out.
