    Which version of Windows? There are numerous keyboard remapping utilities available, some <img src=/S/free.gif border=0 alt=free width=30 height=15>. KeyTweak will do the deed for Windows 2000/XP, for instance. You might find others at Freeware Home - System Utilities > Keyboard Tools.

    Re: Print Screen Key

    I have a computer base training module out there and I want to make sure the user can not copy the test questions. I have been able to disable the right click and the copy in internet explorer does not copy and paste the module. I know that there are some savvy users out there and I just want them to not be able to capture the screen image and paste in word.

    You want to do this on someone else's machine over the internet?

    Dear Deborah,
    Your approach (to limit some computer features) puts you in losing position. Imagine a

    I have a program that I can set any key combination to the the "Print Screen" function, how are you going to disable that?

    Now that I know what you're looking for <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15> I'd say you're on a losing quest. If I'm ever in such a situation, I simply find what I'm after in the browser cache and "steal" it from there. I'm sure other "savvy" users can do the same. There are probably a dozen other ways to achieve this. I'm afraid that once you've served a webpage to a browser, you've served it up on a platter, for the user to use as they wish.

    If Pritn screen doesn't wok, I can always use my 3rd party screen-capture pogram. or simply take a picture of the screen with my digital camera, or the camera in my phone or PDA. It's a tough fight to win.

    Re: Print Screen Key

    WOW! I must be living in the dark ages. I would not have imagined that people would do all that stuff. Anyway, it is an AHA CPR test and we monitor who takes the test. Usually, it has been hand written so I decided to get approval to generate a CBT to help out the instructors. I can secure it to one PC but I don't think I can secure it anymore!!!

    THANKS for everyone's input!

    Oh boy, I'm glad I read this post. It reminded me that I'm due to renew my certification this month. I'd better contact my teacher...
