Capture error messages as text

Here's a hidden Windows tip that I just learned: hit Ctrl+Insert instead of Alt+Print Screen when you get an error message. This will copy the message to the clipboard as text rather than as a screen shot. Now you can paste it straight into Notepad on your way to the Google search box. This is a great tip to share with those to whom you provide tech support.
