The Prt Scrn key is pretty handy.

Ctrl and Print Screen at same time, then go to paint and paste.

This.

Also if it's a video. Then Print Screen may not work. There are some video players (such as GOM) that will actually allow you to take screen shots.

You could take a picture of the screen with your phone camera and then e-mail it to yourself.

You have to hit print screen then paste it into Paint or some other photo editing program. Hitting print screen basically copies the image to your clipboard. You then have to paste it somewhere.

I use zapgrab. It allows you to window around an area and capture only what you want.
You can google it.
