You are probably thinking of the "Print Screen" button at the top-right of the keyboard above the arrow keys. Press that, and in Windows it copys the current display to the clipboard.
I presume johnsonbird wants something more advanced than that, which is why he asked the question. Personally, I use the screen capture tools with my graphics package (Ulead PhotoImpact), but the app CyCo recommended looks good.

Do these screen capture tools give u a better quality image than the print screen button on the keyboard for a PC? I'm asking because when I use print screen and paste it into Photoshop, i looks fine at its normal size. But when I change the entire image size down to, lets say 400 x 250, it looks horrible. Its very blurry. Even when I sharpen it, it does not look to great.
So is there a way to fix this with the screen capture tools?
Thanks for your help!

I am on a MAC so this is useless to me but I saw it posted recently on another forum. It looks good. It will take a picture in a browser window and will scroll so it gets the whole window, not just what you se cut off.
Go to getglobe.com
download and install the free toolbar there.
It has a screen capture feature that is really slick.
Don't worry there is absolutely nothing vicious about my toolbar...just cool.
This message is not intended to be spam...just might be a useful tool.
This is a freebie that I've used for a while now and love, with programable hotkeys and interval shots for gaming.
It's called PrintKey2000 and it's made by BLS-Software. You run it and an icon will appear in the bottom right taskbar. Double Click it to open (it'll take a screen shot) you can then grab a rectangle of the screen, set hotkeys, change some of the image properties, and save/print files.
