Wow. Terminate-stay-resident mode. I haven't heard that term in a long time.

A program called 'Print Screen' makes the 'PrtScr' key respond in Windows 3.1
or 95 just as it did under DOS.  Start it up and it goes into terminate-stay-
resident mode.  Then when that key is hit, the program captures either the
entire screen, or the active window, in a .bmp file that is immediately sent
to the printer and/or saved as a file that can be read by other Windows
programs.  Works like a charm.

It's not shareware or freeware - I believe I paid about $20 a year or two ago.
The vendor touts it mainly as a one-keystroke convenience for recording
information when surfing the net, but it would serve as well for John Jones'
need in this instance.
It came nicely packaged and with a decent manual.  The vendor is JE Software,
a division of Janesway Electronics.  The manual didn't give a website url, but
gives an email address of janesway(--nospam--at) for more info or questions.
