printing Cinnamon menus listing in Mint 17.3

I'm preparing to upgrade my Mint 17.3 to 19.1.

Along the way I have installed quite a few packages from the repositories and would hate to lose them in the upgrade process.

Is it possible for me to print a hard copy of the menus listing so that I can review it and selectively install upgraded copies of these packages?

I would be grateful for any help.

Well, Mint 19 Cinnamon has an app called "Screenshot" which can create a photo of an open window or the whole screen.
You can also list all installed packages to a text file in your home directory with this command from the terminal:
dpkg --get-selections | grep -v deinstall > Installed.txt
The file in your home directory will be called "Installed.txt"
