    Option Shift 3?

    Something like that. I know where to put my fingers just not what the keys are called. It might be Apple Shift 3. That sounds better. Also Apple Shift 4 will allow you to select the area you want to capture.

    Edit: Apparently... I have... failed... *bamboo pole through the stomach*

    Cmd + Shift + 4 + Space Bar will switch the pointer crosshairs to a camera icon and allow you to image a selected window, or finder icon
