On the final night of a recent holiday a fellow guest took a picture of the six of us at our table. Unfortunately this turned out to be a video clip rather than the still photo we intended. If I freeze the video at any particular point is there a way I can print a still photograph from it?

Pressing Alt + PrtScn takes a screengrab of the active window and sends it to the Windows Clipboard as a bitmap image, and you can open and print it in your preferred image editing program or Windows Paint. However, due to the way Windows displays video it doesn’t always work, but give it a try anyway and if all you see is a blank screen download a small freeware program called DuckCapture, which should work.
