we can use the saveas command to save your Figure OR GUI to a specific file format as like below.
If you press Save Fig button in gui, below code gcf will capture your window and save in bmp format into your current directory.
output.bmpFig- output.bmp

thanks to this example, which solved my problem first. Nevertheless I would like to save a gui window in png or jpg-format, because the size of bmp ist pretty big. If I choose jpg or png, only a small part of the figure is saved. Do you know a solution for this?
Kind regards

You can use the saveas command to save your figure to a specific file format.
% ...
h = figure;
plot(X, y, '-bs', 'Linewidth', 1.4, 'Markersize', 10);
% ...
This way, the figure is plotted, and automatically saved to the desired file format.
Alternatively you can wait for the plot to appear and click 'save as' in the menu.

Since the menu is generally disabled in a GUI, that option is probably not available.
