    I've been wanting to be able to pull up satellite images of properties so I can send the images to potential clients showing where various things happen...like snow piles, parts we shovel..etc.

    I go to different sites that have the images, but can't save the above still shot to my hard drive..

    I know there's a easy way to do this. cause I see posts here with it all the time when guys are like "what to do I charge, and how long would this take"?:confused:

    No, I'm saying that you press those buttons at the same time and go into photshop or paint or w/e you use to edit photos, and press ctrl+V
    . Then the picture will popup, but I reccomend you hide the toolbar and press f10 or f11 for a full screen, then press the ctrl+prnt scrn

    As AJS said. You can press just "PrntScrn" which will copy your entire desktop image to your clipboard. Paint is easy enough to use, if you have windows. Open it, Ctrl+V (paste) and your desktop pops up as an image. Crop out the image that you want, copy it to clipboard, create a new image in Paint, get rid of the first one, paste it in and save it as the file type you want. Done and done.
