    Boneheaded newb wants to take screenshots
    Ok this boneheaded newb who did search this forum and knows there are articles about it can't seem to find them and also did a google search but might be a doofus about what search terms to put in to it but can anyone give me the simple 411 on how to create screenshots of my Leopard desktop ?

    Shift-command-3 takes a pic of the entire desktop.

    Shift-comand-4 turns the pointer into crosshairs. Drag the mouse over a chosen area, and voila.

    Go to a menu-bar item and click it. Shift-command-4-spacebar turns the pointer into a camera. Click the mouse for a pic of the chosen drop-down menu.

    The pix appear on the desktop. The free utility application Onyx allows you to change the desktop pix to jpgs and others.

    the space bar trick works with all windows not just menu items just to add to that.
