Actually you said this: "my solution to the problem is to copy the
screen to the Clipboard with SHIFT-PrtSc" so you were quite
specifically claiming that Shift-PrtScn captures a QBASIC graphics
screen (what this thread is all about).

The processor *does*, but your version of Windows *doesn't*. I also
run Windows 7 on a 64-bit CPU (AMD Athlon) but I run *32-bit* Windows
7: 16-bit MS-DOS applications like QBASIC run on it OK. Personally I
can't see much point in running 64-bit Windows 7; it generally doesn't
benefit 32-bit applications (unless you want to run a lot of them at
the same time).
If you want to run MS-DOS programs like QBASIC under 64-bit Windows,
you can do so using DOSBOX:
In fact I wouldn't be surprised if DOSBOX allows you to capture the
graphics screen, but I don't know for sure.
