My sentiment (and usual practice) is to show all windows since it is so easy
to make one incorrect choice (e.g., click) and go down an erroneous path.
OTOH, we all know that it is real easy to fill up pages with screen shots,
and how that can affect layout and continuity (particularly if you're using
Word). One approach I have used is to is to crop the captures, leaving just
the necessary part(s) of a window. This is certainly not a cure-all, but it
can help in many situations.
