Hi Franktee,

Try this-- Open Paint, and go to Image | Attributes. Change both the Width
and Height to = 1. Make sure that Units = Pixels. OK to save changes, and
then go and do your printscreen again.
After making these changes, hopefully the next time you paste, you will be
prompted with a message that the size of the object is bigger than the
available space, and Paint will automatically resize it for you so that it
all fits in one image. Either that or Paint will just resize it for you with
no message. Hope this helps.

Hi again Erikka,
Have just solved the problem, When in paint I then save to my documents and
then print.
Thanks again.
