Here's an easy way:

Display the plot you want to store.
Alt-PrintScreen     (which means to hold Alt and hit the PrintScreen key
                     one time)
open a gif editor
paste the plot into the editor

The Alt-PrintScreen trick copies the image (including the window around it
-- thus you want to crop) into the Windows clipboard.  This should work in

I use L-View Pro a lot.  There might be better things (e.g., PhotoShop)
but it works and I got it on the web.  Windows PaintBrush works, but I
think it only stores in BMP.
