First make your graphics editing program or even the word processing program ready. Create a new document and then position the cursor at the area you want the screenshot to appear. 

Press ‘Print Screen’ key and then paste (Ctrl + V) the screenshot in the document. Save the document. You may use crop tool  to do the cropping. 

If you want to grab a specific window without the use of the cropping tool, another option is to use Alt + Print Screen. It will simply capture the current selected window and not the entire screen.
