OK, here come detailed instructions.
1) press SHIFT and after that, without letting SHIFT come up, press
PrtSc. This sends the entire contents of the display to the Clipboard.
2) double-click the Paint.NET icon with the Left mouse key. This brings
the Paint.NET program to the screen.
3) choose from Paint.NET's pull-down menu the option "New". This opens
a new picture buffer in the program.
4) take the cursor to the big white area in the middle of the middle
window of the Paint.NET, press CONTROL and without letting CONTROL go up
press V. This sends the Clipboard's entire contents into the
Paint.NET's picture buffer. The program automagically takes care of the
display resolution, and of enlargening the canvas to hold the whole buffer.
5) choose Save As, and save your graphics anywhere you should wish.
I hope that this will help.
