With the hints of print-screening into MSPaint, it might be helpful to
know that once the screen print is in the clipboard you can paste it
into most anything that can handle graphics -- notably WordPerfect and
probably any word processor and print it from there.

One note: if <print-screen> doesn't work, try <ctrl><print screen>.
