  • cmd-shift-4. Hold ctrl down and drag from the corner you want to the opposite corner.

    When you let go, the camera noise happens, and your image is in the clipboard.

    Don't hold control if you don't want it in the clipboard.

    (I think the Mac is more flexible, but YMMV).
    • I think the OS X is more flexible too -- AFAIK, XP only has Ctrl/Alt-PrintScreen to capture fullscreen or a single window, but being able to capture a region means you can grab background areas in one shot instead of grabbing everything then cropping. But my OP is a "common case A is easier on Foo than Bar" and still worth mentioning.
      • I prefer the OSX way to do it as well.

        I've been using these boxes for longer than I care to admit, and if I've needed to take a dozen screen shots, it's a lot. But I've never forgotten Cmd-Shift-3 and Cmd-Shift-4, because it's always been that way, or at least it has been for about the last 21 years since the 128K was released. ;-)

        Yet there's a nicely labeled "Print Scrn" button on PC/Win* keyboards, but I can never remember the magic incantation to use it. Go figure.
