Default ?Clipboard Contents

On Wed, 29 Mar 2006 03:09:02 -0800, BAP

?Often, not having options available to copy or export in some way a Display
of sorts, I find that,(wrongly, perhaps,) my last resort is to use
Alt-Print/Screen to get some record of what may of value in the Display.
However, the
format of the record is actually an image. I have problems dealing with it
when it comes to sort it out, in some way, or edit it, if necessary.
Is there a way to extract the contents and paste them, in
an editable format, to Notepad, for instance, of to a favorite Word
Processor ?

Thanks, in advance, for any suggestions!

If it's Web pages then try saving the page with your browser, in
Netscape it's under the File menu. Save it to a Temp file then open
it with Word. The graphics won't show up because they are not on
your machine but all the text and URL's are there although they
won't work. You can then edit it and copy/paste text etc.

If that's not it what kind of displays are you interested in?
