Becky beckyo mentioned in her LJ about finding a 'patch' for PowerDVD 4.0... (Thanks for sharing, Becky!)
What she didn't include was the link to find it. I thought I'd never figure it out. (sigh) LOL. Opening the actual software then using the 'help' (and so on) method is far more trouble than necessary! LOL.
Anyway, not being quite as stupid as I look (I guess!), I finally realized I just needed to go to the CyberLink home page--then click on downloads and patches. (Or you can DL the actual patch in question directly here.)
Why all the fuss? I haven't tried it yet, but this will allow you to do a more simple screencapture. (Everyone wants that, after all!)
From Becky's entry:
[You can read the full thing here]
When that installs, (it's about 8MB), you should be able to screen cap. A warning though, right click on the little camera, and choose capture to clipboard, otherwise, it's set to default capture to wallpaper. You can capture to many other things, including file, but i couldn't FIND the file it's default set to. [MY NOTE: CTRL-C to open "Configuration", Advanced, Capture. Then you an choose how to capture and set the directory where you want the files to go.]
And the download is free.
You know, I've never had trouble doing screen captures using PowerDVD, personally. But this got me wondering if there were improvements I didn't have! So of course... LOL. (I love DLing and adding new softwares.)
That takes me back to my early computer days. We had tiny hard drives back then. But it beat the days of the double-floppy disk drives, so we didn't complain (much!).
I loved trying new softwares, so I was constantly installing and uninstalling and then installing something else. ROFL.
I've actually got several softwares installed right now that I want to try, but I've been too busy to get to it...
