    I've seen a thread like this on a certain other thumper forum and thought to myself, "what a cool idea for ADVrider, considering almost all of my desktops come from the fantastical ride reports that eat up all the time I should spend working!"

    Let's see 'em! :deal Maybe we can even keep this thread going long enough to entertain the cold weather Brethren and Sistren(?) who don't ride year-round...

    In case you don't know how, just do a screen grab [print screen on a Windoes keyboard, even easier I think on a Mac] then open up a blank page with photo editing software and paste!

    My most recent came from Mad Mac, posted in the "Your Best Travel Pic Ever" thread. His is my current favorite, so I'll start.

    Howdy All,

    Please bear with my computer ignorance, how did you folks post the desk top photo, is there a way to click your desk top and save it to a jpeg or did you just take a regular photo and then post it? :ear Thanks.

    Using a Windoze OS, like XP?

    With your desktop showing, press the "Print Scrn" key on your keyboard. The go into All Progarms/Accessories and open "Paint." Click on "Edit" then "Paste." The image of your desktop should appear. Then click on "File" then "Save As" and save the image as a Jpeg or Gif file (BMP files are typically too big to upload).

    Then either upload as an attachment, or save to your Smugmig account and link.







    Ooops, but first, erase or hide all the pr0n icons from your desktop. :lol3
