No, I'm not posting one, here.
Instead, here's the definition from Oxford Language as found on Google:
a frame of television or video footage that is digitized and stored as a still image for subsequent display, editing, or printing."a screen grab from Wednesday's episode"
take a screen grab of"the rap star screen-grabbed almost a dozen tweets from fans"
This is a new term in English which I just saw and will make good use of. It fills a need and, as a bonus, is colorful!
You could use the more standard, technical phrase "screen capture" or "screen shot" but that doesn't quite get across the immediacy of the action.
I saw the term in a story about a YouTuber who purposely crashed his plane to get more views, thereby breaking all sorts of FAA regulations. Now, what sort of expression can we invent to describe that action?
