Preview-Taking a picture of a menu
Mac iBook G4
Below is the text of "Preview Help-Taking a picture of a menu". I can't get the picture of a drop-down menu, for instance in Safari>Window>drop down menu.
I’ve tried various ways of following the instructions. each time I end up with a screenshot of the entire computer window (which does include the drop down menu, but then to get a picture of just the drop down menu I would have to select the drop down menu, which is just another stop in the proces. What I want is just the Safari list of open Safari windows below “Window”. My understanding is that that is possible to do in Preview.
Please give me feedback on how to accomplish what I’ve described.
Preview Help—Taking a picture of a menu
You can take a picture of a pull-down or pop-up menu.
Choose File>Grab>Timed Screen.
Press the mouse button to open the menu you want to capture, and keep the mouse button pressed until the Timed Screen Grab dialog closes and the picture appears.
Preview captures the menu within 10 seconds. The image is saved to your Desktop.

Command-Shift-3 Take a picture of the screen
Command-Shift-4 Take a picture of the selection
This is new. Thanks.
Command-Shift-4, then press Control while selecting Take a picture of the screen, place in Clipboard.
It accomplishes what I've wanted to do.

I keep writing (more than 1 character), and I get the same error message. Also, the entire message doesn't show up with the quote I've chosen to show from your response. when I "Submit Reply"
2. The "Attachment" also doesn't show up in my response.
3. I'm wary of going to other pages to find the attachment, and to look for other things on other applications such as word, because when I try to get back to this page I've lost the text I've entered.
4. The attachment you sent (and I don't understand how the 'Forums.macrumors' site uses "attachments". Should they Open?) shows me a menu bar I've never seen in Preview (or Safari), nor have I seen the choices on the drop down menu you show. I wish I could get to that "attachment" now, or to a picture of it, in order to explain myself more clearly. What I want to know is how I can find those unknown, to me, extra choices on preview,
Thanks for your help ggjstudios. I look forward to your reply.

I thought I replied to this? I must've not submitted.
Anyway, I had said that command+shift+4 works to capture a selection, but while you have the cursor active for capturing, you can hit space to make it capture a window. You can use this to capture just a menu.
1) Select your menu
