I was wondering how it is possible to take a screen shot of a desktop icon such as a shortcut so i can use it in a document. I mean i can use ctrl and print screen but that gets the background... any help?

What in particular are you looking for? Because you can always grab a gif of the icon from the program file or if it is in Windows itself
%SystemRoot%\system32\SHELL32.dll

I may actually be insane.

open the containing folder which the icon is in, then you'll be able to take a screen shot on a white background from which you can crop the needed image.

You could also change the Desk Top to a white background, take your screen shot and then change the Desk Top back to what it was.
