    You can allways do the PrintScreen trick and then paste it in into Word and print it from there...

    Or you can find the FEN or PGN and import it into a well chosen chess program and print it from there...

    i may have figured out your suggestion but it does not work
    hit control P , got printer screen, printed to file was an option
    saved file, surprised it is listed as a 64 kb file, opened file got a small page of text gibberish
    tried to print file, tried a number or selections to open file, word, word perfect, windows picture manager, etc no luck

    still trying to figure out how to print a game board

    thanks

    Just hit the printscreen button at the top of your keyboard. This will copy whatever is on your screen to the clipboard. Open Word or whatever word processor program you use and paste it in.

    yeah easiest is probably to open the "analyze board" window, hit ALT+PRNTSCRN, open Paint, Edit->Paste, then print the image from Paint.
