Taking Screen Shots for Windows and Mac OS

Mac OS X:

To take a screen shot of the entire screen, hold down Command (the key with the apple on it), Shift and 3 keys.
If you want to select a portion to capture, hold down Command, Shift and 4 keys
If you immediately hit the Spacebar after that, a camera appears that allows you to take a screen shot of any open window.

Mac OS X Leopard:

Select the area that you want to take a screen shot of. Press and hold the Command, Shift, and 4 keys.
You can then use:
*Space - which locks the size of the selected area
*Shift - which you can use to resize from one edge of the selected area
*Option - which you can use to resize the selected area from the center

Mac OS X Lion:

Lion allows you to get screen shots from Preview
1) Launch Preview
2) Under the “File” menu, click on “Take Screen Shot," there are then three options:
*Selection – functions like command+shift+4 on earlier OS
*Window – functions like command+shift+4+space on earlier OS
*Entire Screen – captures the entire screen, functions like command+shift+3 on earlier OS

Windows XP/Vista/7:

To copy the entire screen just press the "Print Screen" key

To copy only the open window, click on the window and then press and hold the ALT key and the Print Screen Key.

If you want to save it in in a word file, open the file and then paste the image by pressing "Control" key and "V" key at the same time.
