DearWebby is actually Helmut Morscher, the CEO of Webby, inc.

Originally the "Tech Support Pits" were reports of the funniest tech support incidents, but over the years the column gradually shifted to answering tech support questions put forward by the readers of the Dear Webby Humor Letter.

This collection of computer and web advice was started partly because readers demanded an archive, and partly because some questions were asked again and again. Each page has a different day's Tech Support Pits column.

Have FUN!

Tech Support Pits:
From Steve=== Dear Webby, Do you know if there is a way to remove individual pictures from a powerpoint presentation? I get these from friends all the time, but sometimes there's only one picture I want to keep out of the bunch. Thanks Steve Dear Steve Untold Millions of people share your frustration, or have shared it in the past, until they figured out how to do a screen capture. Cleverly disguised as an ordinary key on the keybooard is the "Print Screen" key. Open your graphics program, like for example PaintShopPro. Then start that PPS slide show. When you get to the picture you want, hit that "Print Screen" key. The picture is "printed" into memory. ALT-TAB from the slide show to PSP, hit CTRL V to paste. That opens a new picture with the "printed" picture in it. The picture will be the size of your monitor resolution. If you crank your monitor resolution to 2000 x 1600, that will be the size of the picture, but at a rather pathetic dots per inch number. You can then reduce it from 3 acres to page size, and at the same time increase the dots per inch to a number that produces a sharp print on your printer. If you want to write some text onto the picture, do that AFTER you have re-sized the picture. Text does not resize very well. If you have more pictures to grab, ALT-TAB back into the slide show and continue to the next picture that you want to "print" to memory. Have FUN Dear Webby
