Use the "PrintScreen" key on the keyboard. Make sure the Desktop has nothing else displayed on it, (eg no other open windows), press the PrintScreen key.

Then open your Paint program, (Start > All programs > Accessories > Paint, or maybe MSPaint), go to the menu bar for Edit, then Paste and click. That will paste the image you took from the PrintScreen key of your Desktop.

Go to File > Save as, choose a name for the file, then save that image as file type JPEG, onto your Desktop or some other folder you can easily get to.

Then go to some image hosting service like ImageShack or PhotoBucket, upload your image from your computer to that web site. Make sure the image can be viewed easily, then copy the url web address for that web page and post it into a reply to this post.
