DOS Screen Capture

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.
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,
* 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.). so, no screen capture software can get around it.
