Win7 has a snipping tool built in.  You find it by clicking Start>All
Programs>Accessories.  Easy to use, just outline what you want to snip from the
screen, then save wherever you want. It saves as a jpg.  BUT, if it is pictures
you are trying to capture, just right click the picture and select 'save picture
as'.  Then save it where you want and rename. 

'Prnt Scrn' captures the whole screen as you see it.  You will have to edit to
get the portion of the screen you want to save.  After pushing the Prnt Scrn key
(it really just copies it) open the program you want to save it in--anything
from Word to Paint--and paste.

Where does the file go that you create this way?

To capture only the active window, press Alt-PrtScn. You'll still need
to edit some, but at least you won't have to cut large blocks that are
Outlook, AIM, or whatever else shows from behind the image you're grabbing.
