You can capture it with Alt-PrtScrn (or an image capturing program such as Screen Shot), crop it as needed and save it to an image file.  Then you can select it as an image for a command button (for example).

And I would download this free killer tool:

This will convert any image format to any other image format.  So, you can easily create an actual .ICO file.

While not free, Snagit is the best tool I have found for grabbing parts of the screen. It is well worth he price.   I could not live without it. I use it it all the time.

Agree. Snagit.  Robo Screen Capture was excellent, which I have, but no longer easily found.
