Re: IT print



Perhaps you already know this, but if you want to capture just one window on 
the screen (e.g. not the whole desktop), you can press Ctrl+Alt+"Print 
Screen". Then you can paste it (per Kevin's directions below: cntl-v to 
paste) into a word document or use mspaint from the command line.  I realize 
this key combo a bit of a hand-full but it allows you to capture just the 
window you're interested in.  Good for document steps in documents.
