Kind of a silly question, but I have never know how /needed/wanted to do one.

How do you take a screen shot?

PS I have a PC.

shift-printscreen

That copies it to your clipboard, so you can paste it into photoshop or your favorite editor.

You may not need the shift key, depends on the keyboard.
You can also download little tiny freeware programs that make it easier. Like I use PrintKey2000. When i press prntscrn, it opens up a little window with the screen capture in it, lets me crop it to what I want, highlight things and a whole host of other things, and then I can save it. It saves having to wait for Photoshop or whatever to open.

You are also able to open it in paint. That's a bit nostalgic.
