Screen Capture in Windows Vista on HP Pavilion dv7-1262us

Hello,

The help feature instructs me to do a prt sc or an alt/prt sc and then paste the captured screen into Paint, but paste is not an option in Paint. On my previous laptop with Windows XP all I had to do was prt sc or shft/prt sc and I could paste the captured screen into Word, or email, or mostly any document.  I really use this feature a lot and really miss it on my new laptop with Vista.

Thank you for your guidance.
