Full DOS Screen
Note: It is not possible to capture graphics from full DOS screens under Windows XP. Since this is a limitation of the operating system itself, no screen capture software can get around it. However Microsoft is offering a solution with their product "Virtual PC 2004" for free. Click here for details.

There are two types of DOS screens: DOS Windows and Full DOS Screens:

  • A DOS Window is like any other window except that a DOS application is displayed in it. It contains a title bar and may or may not contain frame borders or scroll bars. Images in DOS windows are captured and/or printed with the standard Windows capture methods, so do not select any of the Full DOS Screen methods. By the same token, do not select any of the Full DOS Screen methods to capture images in standard windows.
  • A Full DOS Screen has neither a title bar nor frame borders or scroll bars and covers the entire display, including the Windows Taskbar. This is not a window (it cannot be moved, resized, minimized, etc.). Select one of the three DOS capture methods described below to capture and/or print full DOS screens.

Full DOS Screen: Text As Graphic

Select this capture method and then press the Print Screen key if you are running a DOS text application in a Full DOS Screen and you want to print and/or capture it as an image.

Full DOS Screen: Text As Text File

Select this capture method and then press the Print Screen key if you are running a DOS text application in a Full DOS Screen and you want to capture the displayed text to a text file.

No file name or image will be displayed in the Main Window File List Box; rather, the Browse for Folder dialog will open so you can select the folder in which you want to save the captured text file.

Saved images will be automatically named DOStext1.txt, DOStext2.txt, etc.

Full DOS Screen: Graphics Only

Select this capture method and then press the Print Screen key if the image in the Full DOS Screen is a graphic (e.g., a graphic game screen) and you want to print and/or capture it as an image.

Note: Some DOS games and graphic applications disable screen capture functionality and therefore cannot be captured or printed.
