How do you Screenshot?

I already know Prt Scr stores a .jpg in your ...\Star Trek Online\Live\screenshots folder but those are pure scenery no UI etc. I also know there's a command line version that allows you to take single UI screenshots, but what I want to be able to do is screenshot some infocards. If I mouseover gear it lists all the specs and I'd like to capture this info to study outside STO. Anyone know how to do that? It's probably idiotically simple but ... :/

    While I'm pretty sure you can print the screen with the UI with a command (I think it's /screenshot_ui or something close: http://sto.gamepedia.com/List_of_console_commands ), if you have the Steam overlay, you can use it as well, or use any other screenshot-taking software like Gadwin PrintScreen.

    If you push PrtSc, you can switch to an app like Paint or Photoshop, and paste the screenshot into there.

    Well... There should be an in game method or two, one of which might be /screenshot in the chatbox. Don't quote me on it though, I haven't done that in a while. There is also the PrtScn option, AND... if you're running through Steam, a hotkey through Steam as well. I got mine set to F11 as F12 kinda conflicts with an in game keybind.
    I can't take it anymore! Could everyone just chill out for two seconds before something CRAZY happens again?!
