Default Print Screen help

Basically I'm doing some work and I need to print screen. The screenshots I want have to involve the cursor/pointer however when I print screen, the pointer is edited out. Is there a setting where you can choose to turn the pointer on/off when doing screenshots in Windows XP? Thanks very much if there's a quick response.

You can't capture the cursor when you press print screen because windows does not consider it as an image. However, you can get capture software which enables you to capture with the cursor. If not, you can simply paste this image of a cursor onto a picture you have print screened
