Aleksandr is correct that you can use the Print Screen button, but there are a few different options. Your version of windows may have a program called 'Snipping Tool'. Otherwise, you can download a screenshot tool, like Jing. These two options allow you to select the area of your screen that you want to capture and either copy/paste where you want the capture or save as an image.

The Print Screen (PrtScn or more often PrtScnSysRq) button is just above Insert. Press printscreen when you want to capture the image you want, then go to ex. Paint, and then Control+V or Command+V or left click>paste, and then save it as any type of file as you want. If you use Windows (I use Windows 7), you can use a windows accesorie called "Snipping Tool", with which you can capture the whole, or part of your screen. To access it, go to "Start">"All Programs">"Accesories">"Snipping Tool". Hope I helped.
