grabbing screen shots
Vista (and presumably W7) also has a "snipping tool" that makes this a whole lot easier. No need for PrintScreen. It's as easy as 'drag to select area of screen, save as jpg'.
Another option is to print to PDF. I think there's freebies out that there will do this (I have Acrobat Pro for this, courtesy of ex-work).
(Perhaps snipping tool is not in Vista Home Basic, which is just XP with a prettier look anyways).
