I know how to make a screenshot but i can not get my characters name to show up on the screen shot can anyone tell me how to do this please

There are several options for what names you see - in game hit your ESC key, which will bring up an options panel.

You will find a setting in your Options panel called "Overhead Names".
The selections are:
Everyone (shows all names, people, pets things and residents of Wizard City)
None (shows no names at all)
Players (shows all player names only but not residents or things)
Non Players (shows all residents, and things, but not players)
All Others (shows everyone but yourself)

If you have your "Show Names" view set to "Non-Players" you can still move your cursor over someone to see their name appear above their head! If you have your "Show Names" view set to none, you can still move your cursor over other players, shopkeepers and residents, as well as creatures to see their name and title.

You may want to adjust this setting to suit your play style.

To take a screen shot, press the following: "Alt+PrtScreen (aka Print Screen)"
That takes a screen shot and puts it in the clipboard (just in case this wasn't clear, you DO NOT press "+" to take a screen shot). You then press: "Alt+Tab" to minimize Wizard101. After that, open an application like "Paint", or I personally found that Microsoft Word worked fine, and paste the image there ("Ctl+V" or in the drop down menu Edit then Paste). Save it, and Voila! A screen shot.
I'd like to note however, that it has been reported not to work on a Labtop, so I suggest using a Desktop.

Hope that this was informative.

After pressing "prt scr" you should see on your computer screen the address for the screenshot that you just captured.

Most often your screenshots will be found in your 'Program Files/KingsIsle Entertainment/Wizard 101" folder. Check the Wizard 101 folder for the jpeg that you just took.

I have mine setup so that the pics are saved to a different location on a second harddrive. So you are able to change the location to suit your needs.

Have fun!!! :) :) :)
