That by itself leaves lots of questions. Taken literally to be the
"box" then:

In Microsoft use the "Print Screen" followed by mspaint and Edit/paste
(Or SHIFT-PrintScreen if whole screen showed up, I forget which it is.
One does just the box that is hot while the other gets all)

In Unix use xwd. See man xwd and xwud. Also man convert

with box open and text you want for show'n'tell visible
xwd>screen_1.xwd
(click in box of choice)

to view results:
xwud<screen_1.xwd
(click picture to make it go away)

To turn .xwd into jpeg:
convert screen_1.xwd JPEG:screen_1.jpg

With Python running something in one box and a simple script in another
you can create lots of pics for the documentation. If you invert the
colors the pics will have black letters on a white background and save
tons of ink.

In Windows you can right-click, choose "Mark" and then select the
text. Hit <enterto copy it to the clipboard. Then you can paste it
into any text editor you like.
