    You can find it in the keyboard shortcuts in the System Prefs

    Basically a screen shot I think is command-shift-3
    To select an area is command-shift-4
    And to select a window is command-shift-4-spacebar

    At least I think so...
    I am on a PC at work :eek:
    Edit: and I am too slow too

    I forget commands, so always go to the search bar and type in 'grab'. Then go to 'capture'.
