    easy Q to answer

    This isn't even programming related, but it is "disturbing" me quite a bit. You can open a dos prompt box off the start menu ( Win98SE ) and go into a dos program(say like edit, or anything of the likes). Once you are in the dos program, you can hit the print screen button on the keyboard to copy the contents of the screen and paste it into say, paint brush. This has always worked for me. It was working earlier, but now it stopped. What would be the root of this? I checked the PIF for command.com ( the print screen keys.....located right beside alt+enter, etc ).....and that didn't help. I've searched every dos related pif and nothing.

    ....disturbing, frustrating.
