  • Print screen key prints previous screen instead of printing the current screen

    This is the strangest thing I've ever seen from a PC. I'm at the computer and the print screen key prints the previous screen rather than printing the current screen.

    Another peculiarity on this PC is the behavior I get from a paid version of PDF-995. This is software that is used to convert non-PDF files into PDFs. It is behaving very strangely. Instead of capturing the current document, it appears to actually create a PDF that is a print-capture of the previous screen - the desktop screen that was up before you were looking at the document you want to convert to pdf format.

    Has anyone ever seen this before?

    It's running Windows XP Pro. The hardware is a 2.5GHz CPU with 256 MR of RAM. I haven't noticed any other odd behavior on the PC yet. No recent downloads that I know of.

    Fixed by reinstalling PDF 995

    Interesting to note that reinstalling PDF 995 fixed not only PDF 995 but also the functionality of the print-screen key.

    Go figure!!!
