Well, I have written that using a theme based on Classic
theme with application style Windows Classic
has no effect on usage of ClearType for text drawing. Disabling usage of ClearType on ClearType disabled in Windows settings must be re-implemented by the developers of UE/UES. The usage of Windows Classic as UE/UES/UC theme just disables the color gradients, shadings and 3D effects.
Pressing key PrtScr
copies entire Windows desktop area to clipboard. Pressing Alt+PrtSrc
copies just the active window to clipboard. Therefore Alt+PrtSrc
is usually always the better key to use for making a screenshot. Freeware applications like IrfanView
(press key C
apture after installation and starting IrfanView) offer even more options for fast creating 1 or more screenshots (all monitors, just active monitor, just foreground window, just client area of foreground window, a user defined region, an object/window selected with mouse, a fixed rectangle, with or without mouse pointer, ...).
You are using the Windows Classic desktop theme in Windows 98/2000 look. You can easily modify the desktop theme to Windows 95 look. The difference is the color gradient in the window title bar. In Windows 95 look there is also no color gradient in the window title bar reducing the number of different colors on screenshots dramatically (with no icons usually less than 16). In Windows Desktop settings set for color 2 for active and inactive title bar the same color as for color 1. Then the title bar of an active window is complete blue and the title bar of an inactive window is completely gray with no color gradient.
