Capturing Window In Game


Please, could anyone tell me which program you use to capture the screen in game so you can paste the image on paint or any other application? I tried many of them and they did not work on Windows 7.

Thank you.

    Just take a screenshot with "C" and open the file with Paint or whatever.

    Hi. I've tried that, and it does not work.

    I have Windows 7, and all of my screenshots from the game are saved in: Libraries> Documents> Electronic Arts> Sims 3> Screenshots

    Hope this is what you're looking for. :-)

    If you mean you want to take a picture of what's on your computer screen and not just a regular picture, hit the "PrintScreen" button on your computer. Then open up your picture editing program (I use Paint--nothing fancy) and hit ctrl+V to bring the shot up.
