    Exclamation screenshoot shortcommands help

    I know of the shortcommand that only takes a screenshoot of the focused window (Ctrl+Alt Gr+SysRq),
    but is there even a command that only takes a screenshoot within the frame of the focused window???

    Nope.

    But if your in Windows Vista, there's a program called Snipper that will allow you crop out a portion of the screen you want. Thats about all you can do.

    There are no free or built-in ways of doing this that I know of, but there are a few hacks that you can use, depending on what you are looking for. For instance, if you just want to take full-screen screen shots of internet pages without the menu bar, etc, you can always make a "kiosk mode" version of Internet Explorer for exactly this purpose.

    Make another shortcut for IE. Name it separately than your current (and normal) IE shortcut. Now, right-click the new shortcut, then select "Properties" from the menu. The Properties panel will pop up. Locate the "target" box. At the end of the current string, add a space (press space bar) and then type "-k" without quotes (put that after the last current quotation mark). Press OK at the bottom to save. Now this icon is your kiosk mode Internet Explorer. There will be no visible border or menu bars on this version, so your screen shots will come out with just the inner window contents. There are two problems with this: no URL bar and no navigation. You can get around this by making your homepage Google and remembering your IE hotkeys ("Backspace" = "Back", "Alt & F4" = "Close", "Alt & Tab" / "Alt & Shift & Tab" = Open Window Browsing", etc).

    You can now take inner window screenshots of any internet page--although that was a lot of work to do so when you could have skipped all that and used Paint to crop your image (that's also free & installed with XP).
