It'd be great if there was a "capture" or "snapshot" tool on the standard toolbar, similar to the little camera tool in Adobe products.   The tool would automatically copy the contents of the active data frame's map onto the clipboard. then it could be pasted into other documents and emails without having to do a full print screen and then cropping out all the toolbars and such so that just the map displays.

Try "Fastone Capture" www.fastone.org - making screen/object capture available to all applications

Another tool I use frequently is all the time is jing, http://www.techsmith.com/jing/. It automatically recognizes the individual windows in ArcMap including the data frame and allows quick capture and sharing of the contents in the window.

This has been available in ArcMap as the Copy Map to Clipboard command.

And the functionality was introduced to ArcGIS Pro 2.8: https://pro.arcgis.com/en/pro-app/latest/help/sharing/overview/capture-a-map-or-layout-to-the-clipbo...
