What's with the need for a DOS prompt? Hit the 'Print Scrn' button, open Word and hit paste, then print. But I seriously don't thing this is a graphics printer model....

From Windows, use the Alt-Print Scrn combination to take only the window in focus. Then try as outlined above.

There really is no way to print a graphic such as a screen capture directly from a DOS window unless you are running a DOS program that has the capability of printing graphics. If what you're asking about is how to print from the DOS screen, you can print a file or directory list from a DOS prompt by typing "copy [filename] > LPT1" (without the quotation marks). However, if you are trying to print a screen capture of a DOS program you will need to do as suggested above. Hope this helps!

The PrntScrn solution above are excellent but let me clarify some things. If you're in DOS windows and hit the PrntScrn, what goes to the printer is completely text. That is what ever is in the DOS window. If you are running a DOS Graphics program, then you will get garbage on the printer.

However if your DOS window is on top of Windows, click outside of DOS window before you press PrntScrn. This way you capture the Graphics screen of your monitor including whatever DOS graphics is running in your Dos window. You can also open MS Paint as an alternative to paste and print your captured screen.

Enjoy!
