    How to Post a Screenshot of Disk Management at Ten Forums


    A Disk Management screenshot can often tell us in a glance where problems lie. If you have any issues with or questions about partitioning, your disk configuration, Windows boot issues, or just want to have us take a look then here's quick and easy steps to attach this to your thread.



    Here's How:

    1 Right Click on Start button

    2 Select Disk Management (diskmgmt.msc).

    3 Maximize the Disk Management window to full screen, and perform the following steps. (see screenshots below)

    • By hovering/dragging and scrolling, show all partitions in the Graphical View as necessary,
    • By hovering/dragging, expand all columns in Volume List to show all information,
    • From the 'View/Top' Menu, show Disk List, (instead of Volume List), if necessary.

    4 Take a screenshot (Win+Shift+S) of your Disk Management window, and save it to a file on your desktop.

    5 You can now upload and attach the screenshot file into your post.

    Didn't work. Snipping tool never asks where to save or name it.

    Remember, I've never seen win10 before.

    It didn't work for me. Couldn't manage the screenshot.

    Currently reinstalling Win10 after erasing the disk and repartitioning.

    A Better Way


    May I suggest another free tool for making graphical images that is superior to Snipping Tool.

    Try Screenpresso, its free!
    Screenpresso: The Ultimate Screen Capture Tool for Windows

    It creates a task manager window in your task bar, where you
    can edit images. I use it at work to add textboxes, circle text and such.
    You can also add a picture to you email by right mouse clicking and copying
    to the clipboard. All you need do is hit your print screen keyboard button to
    capture a desktop image. You can do a region or a whole window. :)

    Give it a try!

    I've attached a sample.

    1. Maximize Disk Management window to full screen,
    2. By hovering/dragging and scrolling, show all partitions in the Graphical View as necessary,
    3. By hovering/dragging, expand all columns in Volume List to show all information,
    4. From the 'View/Top' Menu, show Disk List, (instead of Volume List), if necessary.

    or...

    This will do it for you

    Step 1: Download this zip file (contains dmDskmgr-vd.mmc)


    Step 2: Double click dmDskmgr-vd.zip to open the compressed folder
    Double click dmDskmgr-vd.mmc to launch the custom Disk Management console

    Press Alt+PrtScn to grab a snapshot of just the Disk Management window
    Open Paint and Ctrl+V to paste it, then save the image
    Attach the image to a new post.

    Isn't this a bit awkward having a tutorial by a banned user. I assume @Brink would need to update it if required.

    I'm assuming the member was not banned because of anything in this thread. The information is still valid.

    Awkward? Perhaps.
