    Doing a COPY Of A Selectable Portion Of A Window ?


    Hello,

    I have a program that when being used opens up additional windows.
    Sometimes from a third party, sometimes from what is embedded in the actual program.

    Hw can I do a COPY (drag a window over the portion I want) so I can Save the picture of, and perhaps send it as an eMail later ?

    In a Mac it's easy.
    Just do a ALT-Shift-Control-4, and a draggable window opens up.

    Anything equivalent in W10 ?
    Or,...?

    Again, thanks for all the previous help.
    Much appreciated.

    Stay well,
    Bob

    :)

  2. In Windows 7 I could select a portion of a webpage to print. How do I do it in Windows 10? There is no "print selection" option on the print menu.

    E72 - Unable to select portions of a received email text / copy text

    You're right, selecting portions of text in an email and copy/pasting them is a basic function... I wonder if this feature is supported by other phones (eg. Blackberry / iPhone).



    Anyway, I think a workaround (may not always work and is not exactly ideal) would be to select "Forward" the email message, from the "forwarded" email, one can now edit / select & copy/paste the needed portions of the email. This procedure isn't exactly
    ideal though but I suppose it works if really needed.
