I do all of my banking online and generally just grab the " payment confirmed" with a screen capture shot loaded in Deb, Mint, Ubuntu etc.
 I guess it's a standard gnome thang ?
I can print it , of course, but I usually just save a .png
Recommend for XFCE ?

Either with ALT + F2 or in the terminal you could just type the 'import' command and use imagemagicks screen capture utility.
Just type...
import bankstatment1.png
You will see the curser turn into some cross hairs with which you can left click and drag a square over the area you want to capture.

or to save to a particular directory..

import /home/user/pictures/bankstatment1.png

of cource 'bankstatement1' could be any name you want to give the picture and .png could also be .jpg .tiff or bmp (probably more formats as well.)

Hi

You can associate one of the function keys F1, F2, etc... with the command

xfce4-screenshooter
(I think the command is in /usr/bin)

via: menu > parameters > keyboard etc...

Another possibility is to create a launcher in the toolbar, associated with
the same command: click on the toolbar > create a launcher etc...

Most banking sessions offer a "print" link inside the page which will give you a printable version of what you're looking at. I find this useful, and saves a lot of ink Wink
