My question probably has a very simple answer. I want to know how to take a printout of the screen. The program I use does have a ‘print’ option but that doesn’t get me what I want. Is it possible to print the entire contents displayed on the computer monitor?
One way to take a printout of the screen (the entire contents of your computer display) is to place the monitor on the photocopy machine and hit the copy button as in the image below. Don’t have a photocopier? Hmmm…
OK, I agree that wasn’t such a good joke but the photo sure is funny. Anyway, here are simpler steps.
It’s very easy to printout of your computer screen. You first need to take a screenshot, import the image in a graphics editor and hit the print button.
FYI, you don’t need to install a dedicated screen capture software, though there is a Windows screenshot program on Vista and the Snipping tool in Windows 7.
The popular Sudoku involves no mathematics at all. Instead of numbers, shapes, alphabet, colors, symbols etc. can be used. That's the beauty and simplicity of the puzzle! By the way, only 5,472,730,538 Sudoku are solvable. That's a big enough number in itself! Contrary to popular belief stemming probably from it's Japanese sounding name, Sudoku did not originate in Japan! It was created by an American Architect, Howard Garns, who called it Number Place - the Japanese still call it that. On a related note, the credit for popularising Sudoku goes to Wayne Gould, a Hong Kong judge. He spent several years in developing a computer program that would automatically generate these puzzles. Gould also convinced The Times in Britain to publish them. From there, Sudoku quickly reached US shores and spread around the world. [more...]
