How do you take a snap shot of a facebook page?
With a smartphone is how i do it
Did you try CTRL+Print Screen?
A snipping tool. Many browsers or operating system have them.
Using Windows, you could use “snipping tool”.
Using a Mac, press Command+up arrow+3 or Command+up arrow+4.
I want to copy a facebook page for future use and would like to save everything I can get over the course of at least a year. I thought there was a function to take a “snap shot” but can’t find it. Thanks in advance for any help.
Windows 7 has a Snipping tool which will allow you to capture screens and portions of screens. Type Snipping in the search field and it will be the top result.
1. Hit the keyboard's Print Screen button (it's on the upper right of the keyboard). This will take a picture of whatever’s on your monitor now.
2. Open a new Bitmap Image on your desktop (right mouse click, then choose New)
3. Open the new Bitmap Image.
4. Right mouse click, then choose Edit.
5. Under Edit in the menu, choose Paste. The page from Step 1 will appear. Save it.
When you see what you want on the screen, press the keyboard “PrtSc” (print screen) key. This captures the screen image to memory.
Press the Start button in the lower left of your screen and type: “mspaint”. This will open the paint program.
On the keyboard, hold down the “Ctrl” key and press “v”. This will copy the image into the Paint program.
Now you can crop, resize, save or whatever you will.
Thanks, all, I think I got the “meat” of it without pictures but it will work. Campaigns are coming up and I found some “juicy” stuff. Will see how it works out, thanks again.
HP Smart print allows you to highlight a specific article on Facebook including pictures. It is free and doesn’t require an HP printer to use.
I installed it on my wife’s computer to print recipes and it works great for that. You should be able to print to a .pdf or .xmp to create a digital copy.
Thanks for the correction.
The NSA already has one for you; just email them:
Greenshot is the best. With Greenshot you have the option of capturing the entire page, not only what can be seen on-screen. It is a free download. I use it daily and would pay for it before I gave it up.
