Are you kidding? Yes, you can use Print Screen and
manually name the resulting file and open it in an
image editor and edit it, crop, and resample it as
needed . . . but if you have more than a handful of
screen captures to do, you are wasting your time.
Ctrl+Shift+P captures exactly what you want, names it
automatically if you choose, saves it as a raster
format of your choosing, sets a resolution hint of
your choosing, and resamples the color depth if you
want . . . Ctrl+Shift+P (you can set that key combo to
whatever you want) gets you there in a fraction of the
time of Alt/Print screen. No biggie for one or two
captures, significant for any real number. And, if
your time is valuable, Alt/Print Screen becomes
expensive . . . if your time is not, then no worries.
