The little nugget is an invaluable tool. I use the Windows equivalent all the time, and put this shortcut in my dock for frequent use. Good info for anyone who didn't know it was there.

Articles like this are the reason I frequent this site.
I switched over to mac within the last year after using windows forever.
I don't know all these tricks and tips that the lifetime mac users know.

I had to google how to screen shot on a mac just today. They gave the command+shift+3 but never mentioned Grab or command+shift+4+spacebar that aisaac added in comments.

I recently subscribed to a mac related magazine hoping to learn more about OS-X and all its features, but I seem to learn more from this site.

Keep on teaching how to get the most out of my iMac please.
Thank you, Maclife, for introducing me to Grab and aisaac to +4+spacebar.

And Command+Shift+4+Spacebar = Capture window.

Nice to know it's there.
Command+Shift+3
Command+Shift+4
is still my capture of choice though.
