How do I take screen shots of just a portion of a window?
The information I have read is about the entire window.
I want to use screen shot to show a problem I'm having.

Is it better to use irfanview or paint?

I obviously have never tried it.

Thanks.

Just use Printscreen.

Paste into paint.

Cut out the part you want to show.

Paste into a new file.

Save.

Upload.

Faststone Capture is simple, light, and free. Start it, click the shape you want to use, drag it around the area you want to capture and release. Goes directly to an "edit" dialog which allows you to modify, title, save, and/or print. Completion of the edit function returns you to the screen from which you captured with the program minimized. When capturing the entire screen, it moves itself out of the picture. Saves as .jpg.
