Wolfgang,

to just capture the _active_ application you should press
ctrl-alt-print screen simultaneously. On German keyboards ctrl
(control) is strg (Steuerung).

To get acceptable screenshots a few things need to be considered. A
screenshot can never have a higher resolution than your actual
desktops setting has, e.g. on a 17" monitor which is typically used
with a res 1024 x 768 px a full screen shot will have the size of 1024
x 768 px. If you printed this screen shot on a printer with 300 dpi
(dots per inch) the screen shot will have the print size of approx
3.41" x 2.56". So you should increase your desktop resolution to the
max possible (forget about vertical/horizontal refresh rates, these
will be as low as 60hz horizontally), than take the desired screen
shot, and place it in your document via pasting it. The one problem
is, that when the application your using has absolute sizes for the
menus given by the programmers in pixels all this will not help. A
300x600 px menu will just appear relatively smaller on a higher
desktop res.

Hope this helps,
sebastian
