Give me ambiguity or give me something else! :)

Seriously though, are you talking about including screenshots in a document? Just push your Print Screen key (or Alt+Print Screen if you only want the active window / dialog, not the entire screen). You can then paste into Word, or into an image editor if you prefer (mspaint, photoshop, whatever) to make any modifications.

HyperSnap can capture lots of screen types, even those that don't work with dlwyatt's offering - ie games, plus pages like long web pages that are larger than your screen.

In Word, you can also do Insert.. Picture.. From File and browse to insert most common image file formats.
