This may be covered elsewhere, but how do I post the screenshot I just took of my desktop?

Thanks in advance...

just below where you post is a grayed out upload attachment find the pic on your computer and I believe hit upload and wait till that is finished and also remember to hit the submit. I believe I use the InLine check box for whatever reasons. hope this helps.

Please don't quote a previous post (especially one with images) just to say thanks - this can be done equally well without quoting
There is lots of space on the server but not unlimited and the limit for attachments is not all that high (I can increase it though)

Thank you Exploder and GrayWizard. I took my two favorit icon themes Hydroxygen and Mashup Alt 3.2 and chose my fav from each icon theme. :)

Thanks again for the kind words Exploder. Here is another screen shot I added 2 more icons for programs I use often.

Reasons why not to let your wife learn to use Linux.... :twisted:
Yes, I did this to my husband's laptop :lol: Boy is he in for a surprise...

Warning, may make your eyes bleed...

Don't leave your laptops unattended, especially if your wife is a Linux-using geek-wannabe like I am :lol:

mmesantos1, the start button really looks good with the black theme.

Edit: How do you get OpenOffice to have white pages instead of the dark grey? When I open OpenOffice Writer with a dark theme enabled the page is dark grey instead of white. I figured you would probably know the answer because you seem quite skilled with dark themes.

Edit 2: I figured it out!
