Since you are presumably on Windows (and haven't told it), you might 
want to use the win.metafile() device, for example.
See ?Devices and ?win.metafile mfor details.

You can also use the menu in an opened R graphics window to copy (e.g. 
as a metafile) to the clipboard and paste into the mentioned applications.
