How can I take a screenshot of a selected region of my screen? I already tried PrtScr but it captures only fullscreen screenshots.


Add a new shortcut, and set it to execute the command below:

xfce4-screenshooter -r

See man xfce4-screenshooter for more detail.

Other xfce-friendly screenshot apps are listed here.


You can also use the combination Alt+PrtScr to only capture the window in focus.


As of Xubuntu 20.04, pressing Shift+PrtScr launches screenshooter with selector cursor
