PostSubject: Keyboard Shortcuts   1/30/2016, 23:01

Repa,

1. Can you give me a Keyboard Shortcut to shut the computer down for times like the "Blue screen " I experienced recently, & it covered the whole screen & the Mouse was unusable in that situation?

2. Is there a way to make a ScreenShot when one is in SafeMode?

Thanks....

Try pressing the Windows Key (the one on the bottom left row that looks like a flag) and release it. Then press the Right Arrow Key (bottom right row that looks like an arrow) and release it. Then press the Enter Key. You can always force a shutdown by pressing the power button and holding it in for about 10 seconds, or until it shuts down.

You do a screen shot in Safe Mode the same as in Normal Mode, but you have to process with whatever application you use in Safe Mode and save it on your hard drive. If you don't, it won't be there when you reboot to go back to Normal Mode.

Repa,

thank you

It doesn't cause damage. Did the key strokes work?

WC, you do exactly the same thing in Safe Mode that you do in Normal Mode to get a screen shot - it's no different. What I was referring to is that if you press the PRTSC button to do a screen shot, it goes to your clipboard. If all you do is leave it there and go back to normal mode, it will no longer be on the clipboard to do a right-click and paste into whatever app you use to save your image. You have to do that just as you always do in normal mode before you leave safe mode.
