I can't speak to the 3048 but for screen captures I used to use the snipping 
tool, but have recently started using Irfanview.  You can run it in the 
background and with a single command (I use Ctrl+F11) can copy the full screen 
or window and save it instantly in a format and location of your choice or to 
the clipboard.

Hit ctrl-shift-C (in my case), wait for the tool to come up, and drag a box around the graph or other content to be cropped and saved.  The image can then be saved as a .PNG, .GIF, or .JPG, or pasted directly into a document.

You can then save the graph or the entire window as a .PNG file.  TimeLab ( http://www.miles.io/timelab/beta.htm ) can also import them (File->Import .RES or .PNP noise data) and save images (File->Save image or .TIM file or File->Copy image to clipboard).  But if all you want is a .PNG, the snipping tool is much easier than dealing with any of this stuff.
