I think he means that he wants to know what standards there are for
screenshot presentation.

It really doesn't matter as long as you are CONSISTENT, it is big, easy to
tell what you are looking at, not so closely cropped that you don't know
what window you are looking at, and a consistent size percentage, like
60%. I also like putting big red circles around the field I want them to
look at specifically.
