    Cmd + shift + 3 for whole screen. Do cmd + shift + 4 instead and you can draw what you want captured.

    pasting internet screen shot into Word

    Different twist...I'm trying to copy an internet page (screen print) into a Word document. I have tried both Command Shift 3 and Command Shift 4. I'm not having success in pasting the view into Word. All I get is a picture of the black Word doc being pasted into itself.

    What am I doing wrong?

    Once you do the cmd shift 4 you have to draw a rectangle over the area you want to screen print. If you're getting a black picture it means you didn't draw the rectangle and so it too a pic of nothing (basically speaking)

    +1 - OP - his comment is what you're looking for to get the MBP to send the Print Screen signal to Windows.
