  4. Save the Word document as a file on your desktop for quick access later.
For Mac OSX Users:

  1. On the screen you want to capture, hold down CommandShift and 3, then release all.
  2. The screen capture will appear as a picture file on your desktop.

    Note: Mac Mail users should make sure that the attachment is "Windows-friendly":

  3. Click File in the Mail toolbar.
  4. Click Attach Files.
  5. Choose your image file.
  6. Select "Send Windows-Friendly Attachments".
