So you want a screen shot of the Tree View?

Open FO to a Tree View. Hold down the ALT key and hit the Print Scrn key. Now you have a picture of the entire screen on your clipboard. Open Word to a new document and type CRTL+V. The picture is now pasted to the Word document.

But, it is an image and includes the FO file name and menu bar. The only way I know how to remove this extraneous stuff is to move it to an image editor like Photo Shop or IrfranView and crop it our or erase it. IrfranView can open a Clipboard item directly. Not sure about the other photo editors.

Another way might be to put the image on Word, print it, cut off the unwanted part and copy it with a scanner.

Maybe your Screen Shot Deluxe can do this. I am not familiar with this software. Have you ever used it with XP? There could be a compatibility issue.
