yep... if you have a mac, press the open apple key, shift key and the number 3 key at the same time if you use windows your keyboard will have a key marked print screen or PrtScrn. You might have to use the windows key or the function key. This will take a picture of your screen. On mac, there will be a picture on your desktop with the screenshot. and on windows you will need to paste into word or paint.

. Forcing the exposure to 1/30 sec or greater will help.

Pretty much the same as ZEROGX - hitting the "Print Screen"/"PrntScrn" button (to the right of F12 usually) should dump the entire display to the clipboard (although my wireless keyboard doesn't). A CTRL-V / paste into a document will then allow you to save as an image. Using ALT-PrntScrn will only copy the front-most active window to the clipboard.
