The Macs have a special key combination for this. I think it was the
CTRL-adjacent-symbol+F3 in OS 9 or earlier. I haven't tried this in Mac OS

Under Windows, you need typically press Print Screen, then paste the outcome
from the clipboard onto a graphical manipulation application like paint.exe.

In Linux, either use import (man import for more details). If you use KDE,
use ksnapshop.

Hope it helps,
