How do I save a Screen Shot?

The first thing you should find is the Print Screen button. Illustrated on the left, by pressing this button you are storing an image of the entire screen to the clipboard. This is handy if you run across an image that has been broke down into several tables or if you just want to capture a particular part of the screen. You may also press Alt + Print Screen and capture only the active window (the window on top). If you are using a laptop, you may have to use a function key, i.e. Fun.+PrtScrn. 

Either way, you have to render the image somewhere, like Paint. SO if you have already pressed the Print Screen button, Go to Start/All Programs/Accessories/Paint:

You can either go to Edit/Paste:

Or click the selector tool then right click and Paste. When you paste the image onto the Paint window, you can then "grab" the image by cursoring over the image and holding down the left click. Move the image to the desired area starting with the top and left:

Then use the grey squares (the cropping margin) to narrow in your bottom and right borders:

The final product should be the image the way you want to save it:

Go to File/Save As to store the photo, after this step you can upload or use it in your projects.
