Capturing DOS programs

Top  Previous  Next

The trick to capturing a DOS program is to run it in a window, instead of full screen. Then, capture its output like any other program. To switch from full screen to in a window, press ALT+ENTER.

Also, note that pressing the PRINTSCREEN key in full screen DOS mode captures the entire DOS screen to the Windows clipboard. You can then open a Windows image editor or word processor and paste in the screen capture, usually by clicking Edit / Paste.
