Default Copying and pasting an opened Window .

Hi folks,

Can anyone please tell me what to do to copy and paste a window that is opened on the desktop.
I know that the print screen would work. But on top of that u will have to edit a lot in order to get the window alone.
What i need is actually this.
I need to open a window as small as the window of the Yahoo messenger(ofcourse not the maximised one). And this window is to be copied and pasted on the image editing page or a simple bitmap file.
Can i do it?
And if so how?
Please help!!!!

Cheers,
tester.

You can't take a screenshot of a window. You have to take a whole screenshot and edit it in paint to be the window. It is not hard, it takes but 15 seconds. Stop being lazy!

If you want to take a screen shot of JUST the active window and not the whole screen, hold down ALT and press PRINTSCREEN, it will take a picture of the active window.

Just passing the knowladge.
Here is another tip:
You know when you are adding to something you type, and the text you type replaces what you typed prievously?

Just hit Insert and it fixes it.
