This will show you how to create a screen shot off just an application or open window on your screen instead of the whole desktop. Thanks to YIT I know this works on all windows OS's and Ubuntu.

Just press "Alt+PrtScn" button to capture application window on your Windows pc. For more options to screenshot application on WIindows and Mac, you can discover them here: http://screenshot.net/screenshot-active-window.html

What happens when you can't use the PRT SCN button?
