:tazz: I have a Windows XP on my laptop and I am trying to put together an internet lesson for my students. I need to take some screenshots of websites and excel files. How do I take a screenshot using keyboard command if I have excel open? What will the computer call the files after the screenshots are taken and where will I find these files in my computer? What kind of manipulations will I be able to do with those? Are the screenshot files in JPG or something else?

To add a little more versatility, try WinSnap. It will allow you to focus your screenshots to make your presentations even clearer. I've been playing with this application for a while now, and really like it.
