This question was answered on February 7, 2005. Much of the information contained herein may have changed since posting.

A print screen is basically a copy paste type of operation.

So if you are trying to have the computer print directly to the printer its not going to happen.

After hitting alt print screen you have to either open word and hip edit / paste, or open a new bitmap image rite click on the white area, choose edit let the old bit map thing show up and then hit edit / paste.

Note: If you are trying to capture a picture in media player XP cant do that At least not to the best of my knowledge.
