Cool way to Copy just what you want...

Did you ever want to copy just a dialog box and paste it into MS Word, then when you paste it is sooo small that you can hardly read it?

Try the following steps:
1) Select the dialog box or window you want to copy.
2) Hold down the Alt key and hit the Print Screen button.
3) Paste (or Control +V)into your Word document.

Notice how only the dialog is pasted in.

Alt+Print Screen just captures an image of the selected application or dialog box. You can use the same thing to capture only the Word document or the Browser window.

Of course you can also cheat and use the "Snipping Tool" that comes with Windows 7 or anther utility.
