If you hit alt + Print Screen (in Windows), an image of the current window
will be put on the clipboard.  Open whatever program you use to edit images,
create a new file, and then paste.  I think the image will come in as a
.bmp, so if you want it as a .jpeg, you will need to do a "Save As".

Subject: I forgot how to 'Screen Capture'

I guess I've lost too many little grey cells - I cant remember how to do a
screen capture.  I need to capture the screen as a .jpg so I can edit
it.  I know it's simple but I dont do it often and I cant remember
how.  I'm on a pc and I tried Ctrl+Print Screen ... shift+Print Screen ....
alt+Print Screen - none of them work. Can anybody enlighten me?
