Use export_fig(). You can find it on the first page of the File Exchange:

You want to snapshot the whole GUI panel or just axes on the GUI panel?

If you just want to snapshot the whole GUI panel, make the GUI window active and press Alt+Prnt Scrn then Ctrl+v to paste the figure to word or any other file.

If you want to snapshot the axes on the GUI panel, I may send you the codes later.
