Is it possible to take a screen shot on Windows XP and then send that with Skype?
I'm running Skype version, 220.127.116.11, and I am not referring to video screen shots either.

Most user friendly way to take screen shot will be using GreenShot (Open Source).
Greenshot is a light-weight screenshot software tool for Windows with the following key features:
- Quickly create screenshots of a selected region, window or fullscreen; you can even capture complete (scrolling) web pages from Internet Explorer.
- Easily annotate, highlight or obfuscate parts of the screenshot.
- Export the screenshot in various ways: save to file, send to printer, copy to clipboard, attach to e-mail.
Depends on the OS.
In Windows use the Snipping Tool (I usually just tap the Windows key and type "snip". The search results will show the tool. Just click it.
In Mac use can use the hotkey combination CMD+SHIFT+3 to take a snapshot of the full screen. CMD+SHIFT+4 will let you select a region. Your screenshots will be saved to the desktop.
In either case, once you have the screenshot, just drag it into Skype to send it to the other party.
On any Windows you can always Hit the Prt Scr (Print Screen) key (the one to the right of the F12 key on a standard keyboard). This will capture the entire screen and put the image it in the
copy paste buffer in memory. Alt+Prt Scr will do the same but only for the active window.
MS Paint (or any other image editor) and hit Ctrl+V, this will paste the image captured. Make any modifications you need and save the file. You can even paste this image directly on other applications like MS Word.
