How to Take a Screenshot with Windows Vista or 7

imageScreen shots or screen captures can be helpful when information on your display/monitor needs to be shown to others ‐ maybe to show a problem or demonstrate how a program is used.

I recently discovered a tool called the “Snipping Tool” that is available in Windows Vista or Windows 7. This tool allows you to select only the portion of the screen.

To access this tool go to your Start menu, select All Programs, the Accessories folder and lastly click on the Snipping Tool. A window will appear with instructions to select the area that you would like to crop. Select the area clicking and holding down your left mouse and dragging around the area.

A new window will appear with your selection that you can send to an email or save to a location of your choosing that you can later open and view as you would any other picture.

Now the next time that you are trying to explain something, you can take a screen shot to help with your explanation.
