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.
When I was in the second or third grade (early 1970s), I used to carry a "Partridge Family" lunchbox to school. I do realize that this makes me suspect but back in the day, the Partridge Family was considered a "hip" show among the 7-12 year-old demographic.
I did not get beat up by other kids back then for carrying such a lunchbox but I would today. My typical lunch back then was a peanut butter and jelly sandwich - cut diagonally by my mother and tucked inside a plastic sandwich bag, along with an apple (that I usually threw away) and maybe a Twinkie or a Ding-Dong. The thermos was full of milk and by the time lunch came around, it was starting to get a little warm. But I drank it anyhow.
Everybody seemed to tote a lunch to school in those days. We had a cafeteria but no "hot lunches" were provided. They make such a big deal out of hot lunches today but somehow I got myself an education just the same without them.
Speaking of The Partridge Family, I penned a letter to Reuben Kincaid. I wanted to join the band. I figured they could use a drummer (the one they had sucked and never said much on the show anyways) or somebody to bang on a tambourine. I didn't know what a cowbell was back then but perhaps they could have used more of it back in the day. I would have been happy to oblige with some cowbell had the opportunity presented itself.
I would have done anything to join the Partridge Family. I figured that my letter to Reuben Kincaid would do the trick and I envisioned that he would sent the multi-colored bus - with Shirley driving - would pull up in front of my house and take me away from my drab life. Then I could hang out with Danny Partridge and shoot spitballs into Lori's hair. I could get tips from Keith on how to pick up girls and perhaps I could make a move on Tracy, who I had a bit of a crush on.
But that never came to be. Rueben let me down. Instead of being welcomed into the Partridge Family, instead I received a form letter in the mail with an 8x10 glossy of Keith (yuck) and an invitation to join the Partridge Family Fan Club.
You could say it was my "Drink your Ovaltine" moment. A little bit of my innocence died that day and I was a little bit more cynical about the world going forward.
The Late Dave Madden was my MIL cousin
Small world! If you ever get access to his fan mail, my letter would be from around October 1972.
