Lol, really wanna ask why, but won't!

Quick google, reckons there's software to do it, but didn't research any, so it is possible

If you have multiple windows and only want a certain part you click on that window and press alt print screen which you can the paste into an email or any other document.

Not sure if that's what you wanted!

here is the email i got from virgin trains

Dear Me,

I am sorry to hear of the problems encountered when using our site.

I have checked and can confirm that I have been able to book tickets myself. I suggest you try making the booking once again and if you still face a problem in making your booking, please send us the exact screen print using the print key located above the insert key so that we can raise the issue with our IT department.

We regret the inconvenience this may have caused.

Kind regards

Gaurav

what kind of keyboard do you have? is it the style where all the f-buttons (f1, f2 etc) and some of the other top buttons have more than one function?

EDIT also what are you pasting it on to. I have just done it successfully using Alt+Prtscn then Ctrl + V to paste and save to paint

f1=help
f2=new
f3=open
f4=save
f5=replace
f6=spell
f7=undo
f8=redo
f9=reply
f10=reply all
f11=forward
f12=send

A couple of things on top of what Pulves said about Alt+Print Screen -

1) If you're using Vista, it has a new feature in it for screen dumps. I cannot remember the name of it, but I beleive it can be found by making your way through Start > Programs > Accessories > and one of the options there. It saves what you select in a range of file formats.

2) If you're on a laptop and you're using XP, you'll have to hold down Fn when you press Print Screen. Once you've done that, start MS Paint up (Start > Programs > Accessories), click the Edit menu, and select Paste. You should save it as a PNG file and be able to send it as an attachment.

Edit: Oh, wireless keyboard. There'll be a key on it for F lock or Fn, use one of them.
