Copy an error messageFebruary 29, 2008
Problem: Something goes wrong and a Windows error message box pops up. But the error text is long, perhaps full of cryptic characters, and you’ve forgotten how to capture it as a screen shot to send to Support.
Solution: Click anywhere on the error message, then press CTRL+C to copy the text to the clipboard. Paste this text into an email message or document.
