Alt-Printscreen Takes Screenshot of Active Window

You may remember that I'd been having trouble taking screenshots of my desktop with three monitors connected using the PrintScreen button, which is a major disadvantage when doing a blog such as mine. I was able to get some sort of compromise by disabling two of my monitors when taking the shot, but even that's a pretty big hassle (and I have yet to find a screen captor program I liked).

Luckily, I've found a solution that works much better for me:

Did you know that you can hit ALT-PrintScreen to take a screenshot of just the active window?

As with normal Printscreen, doing so sends the screenshot into the Clipboard, ready to be pasted into your favorite graphics program.
