    Command-Shift-3 is the keystroke to take a snap of the whole screen, while Command-Shift-4 will produce a set of crosshairs which let you select a specific area.

    command-shift-3, there are a list of keyboard shortcuts you can lookup... I think they were in the international prefs... I'm not sure though (on an XP machine right now) :eek:

    You can also Command+Shift+4 and then tap space bar. It will take a snap of the next window you click on instead of the whole screen.

    I always wondered if you could do that, but I could never find out if you could or not!

    Thanks

    Or you can use Grab in the Applications > Utilities folder, if you don't care to remember the short cut.
