What OS?

In windows you can press the “print screen” button and then paste it into a document.

use Grab in Mac OS. It’s in the utilities folder.

or (on OS X) you can go to sys prefs—> keyboard and mouse—> keyboard shortcuts and see the shortcut you can also reassign the shortcut to something easier (mines F7)

Also in windows if you only want a screen shot of the active window, hold down alt while you press print screen.

For Mac
cmd + shift + 3 (whole screen)
cmd + shift + 4 (selection)
cmd + shift + 4 + space (current window)
