Rookie needing guidance, extracting a portion of a map

Good morning.

Our application runs off of the Arc Engine, but there are times I am asked to do something minor in ArcMap.  I am not sure if I am looking or using the right terminology to track down a solution, but I would have to assume my request is common.

I have a copy of our mxd file.  I need to cut or fence a portion of it (I have removed any layers not needed).  I'd like to save this portion of our map as a shapefile.  The part I do not know how to do, are the steps to fence the specific area in Arcmap.

Thank you for any guidance.
