    Hello guys

    I would like to ask how to take a screen shot for a specific opened window or an application on my desktop screen?
    the matter is I need to take some screen shots for some running applications and send them to the company, but I knew how to take a full screen shot that will display all files/folders on the desktop,

    I will appreciate your kind assistance with many thanks in advance,
    best regards

    Hi: Does this help ?

    To post a screen shot of the active window, hold the Alt key and press the PrtScn key. Open the Windows PAINT application and Paste the screen shot. You can then use PAINT to trim to suit, and save it as a JPG format file

    I use a third party application, which is far easier/faster than Ws procedure. "FastStone Capture" is preferred but costs a few $. Then there is the free "Easy Capture."
