I like printing things out, marking it up, put comments to the side, etc.  With the Kindle, that may seem hard to do – you’re not connected to the printer like your computer is (unless you have the free Kindle for PC application), and a lot of times – for me, at least – it is a pain in the neck to copy a clipping, then sending it over to the computer via the USB cord, etc.

Did you know you can take a screenshot of any Kindle page you are viewing and, for example, move it over as  a picture to, say, a Word or PowerPoint document?  You can, and here is how to do it…

With your Kindle2 or Kindle DX, in any screen you may be viewing, all you need to do is press the ALT + Shift + G keys simultaneously; you will see the screen flash, which is what you want it to do.  After that happens, plug your Kindle into your computer via the USB cord; with your computer screen (Windows users can go through “My Computer”), navigate to your Kindle’s folder called “documents.”  You will see the books that are currently on your Kindle, but you will also see a file with a name starting with “screen-shot.”  That’s what you just took a snapshot of on your Kindle, and it will be in “GIF” format.
