My only suggestion would be that paint will open many types of images and if it is possible to access the actual image file and directly open it with paint, it may be better resolution then opening a print screen.

>> If scrolling the screen to hide names, etc won't work because data is still available in important parts of the image you can use Paint commands to select specific things and delete them (just click on select then right mouse click to draw a box over the part of the image you want removed. Release the right mouse button and hit delete. Boom, gone. Remember to save your file as something meaningful and in a file type that you can share with others (JPEG).
