Easy!

Windows Users

1. Press the Print Screen Button on your keyboard.
2. Open Paint up by going to start > run and type in 'mspaint' and hit run button.
3. Press Ctrl + V or edit > paste

and you see the image of the screen!

In Linux if you have everything installed you should be able to open a terminal and type in

import filename.jpg

It will save your screen as filename.jpg in the current directory. You can also use programs like Ksnapshot or the one that comes with gnome!

You can also go over a window and press I think alt + print screen and it will make a screenshot of the active window only or the window your mouse is over. It may be ctrl + print screen. It's one of them.
