One way is: Press the Print Screen key (PrtSc on my laptop, top right of keyboard) then open Paint and Paste (CTRL-V) the screenshot. You can then save it as a .gif or .jpg etc.

If you're a bit of a technophobe like myself, then you can use a screen print programme, which makes the editing easier! I find paint a bit cumbersome.
There are many around and most of them are freeware, so take a look at I use gadwin printscreen, and find it ok, it's available at

Alt-PrintScreen does just the window with the focus.
