QuickTip: Mac OS X Window Capture

Need a screen capture of just one window? Since we no longer have the ability to print one window, like we did in OS days of old, this trick is handy for doing just that.

Press Command + Shift + 4, then tap the spacebar. The cursor will turn into a camera which you can move around to select any open window.

Thanks to Aaron Adams for this handy tip!
