    You mean like a screen capture?

    cmd-shift-3 to screen capture to a file

    cmd-ctrl-shift-3 to screen capture to the clipboard

    I dunno if it still works, but in OS 9, capslock-apple-shift 4 used to let you click on an open window and print only that window to a picture.... they don't seem to have brought the feature over to OS X though :sad2:

    It's not capslock
    Command+Shift+4 is to crop the area you want a screen shot of
    It works in all version of the Mac OS, including OS X...although I'm not sure about OS6 but that doesn't matter much any more.

    here.
    Add a [+ spacebar] to that...and it'll let you take a shot of a specific window. The 'crosshairs' will turn to a camera...and you're set. :bigthumb:

    Might help if you checked out the Sticky thread on this forum before making threads. ;)
