    How do you "enable" that Services menu when you click the application name?

    You know, when you click the Application name in the title bar, and scroll down to "Services", it gives a bunch of options like "Finder, Grab, Import Image, Make New Sticky Note...etc). Its always deactivated for me. Some things might be useful like the "grab" option.

    How do I "enable" that menu?

    You have to be in a native Cocao application (like Safari, not like Firefox). You have to have something highlighted. For example, if you have text highligted, you can then select "Make new sticky note".

    I don't know about "Grab". It never seems available to me (Although everything else is). If you are interested in doing screen captures, there are shortcuts to do it:

    Command-Shift-3 = Take a picture of the screen
    Command-Shift-4 = Take a picture of the selection
    Command-Shift-4,then press Control while selecting
    = Take a picture of the screen, place in Clipboard.
    Command-Shift-4, then Spacebar
    = Take a picture of the selected window
