Windows: You can use the Windows application called the "Snipping Tool." Go to Start > All Programs and look in the Accessories folder for "Snipping Tool"; or in Windows 8 or 10, do a Search for "Snipping Tool".
Once you start Snipping Tool, just click and drag a box around the area on either screen that you want to copy. If you need to try again, just select "New" in Snipping Tool and drag a new box.
Click Edit, then Copy to make a quick copy of the snipped image to paste it into a document,
You can also choose File, Save As... to save the snip as a .jpg file to send to someone.
Mac: Press Shift-Command-4, then click and drag a box around the area that you want to copy. When you release the mouse or trackpad button, the screenshot will be saved as a .png file on your desktop.
