General hints for working with Microsoft Windows
- Is there a built-in utility for doing a 'check-up' on my hard disk?
- Is there a way to get a quick picture of the screen?
Yes. Windows includes a built-in error checker that can go through all of the files on the local hard disk, and make sure they're all available on disk and readable. See 'Running a Disk Check in Windows'.Back to Questions
Yes. Most Windows PCs have a 'PrtScrn' key (usually located near where the 'F13' key would be). Pressing this key captures an image of the screen to the 'Clipboard'. If you subsequently open a 'Paint' program or other similar program, and select 'Paste', the image will be inserted into the currently open document.Back to Questions
