You may be watching a Movie, and see a scene,or whatever,that would make a nice Desktop, for example.What often happens,is you save a Black square,instead of the screen shot.This fix worked for me,and may for you too.Start >Control Panel >Display >Settings >Advanced >Trouble Shoot >Set Hardware Accelerator to Zero.Take screen shot,then reset Hardware Acclerator, back to full again.Hope this helps. 🙂
Didn't even realize it could be done from a movie – thanks so much for letting us know about this, Doug!
Should you pause the movie or do you take the screenshot when it is still playing? Also can you use this picture for a desktop wallpaper?
Hi Jason,sorry for not getting back sooner,as I missed your post.I use Snagit, which grabs the Image, while the Movie is still Playing.I use them for Desktop Wallpaper.R/C on Image on your H/D and select Set as Desktop Background. 🙂
