Windows Snipping Tool
“Why did I never hear about this tool before now”.
“I’ll never get back the hours I’ve wasted before I discovered this tool”
Two fairly common statements made by windows users when first introduced to the simple but essential Snipping Tool
Sometimes the easiest way to make a copy of something is to take a snapshot of your screen—this is what Snipping Tool does. An essential toll for presentations or if you simply want to add a screen grab or portion of your screen to an email as an image file.
Capture part or all of your PC screen, add notes, save the snip, or email it right from the Snipping Tool window. You can capture any of the following types of snips:
- Free-form Snip. Draw a free-form shape around an object.
- Rectangular Snip.Drag the cursor around an object to form a rectangle.
- Window Snip.Select a window, such as a browser window or dialog box, that you want to capture.
- Full-screen Snip.Capture the entire screen.
After you capture a snip, it’s automatically copied to the Snipping Tool window. From there, you can annotate, save, or share the snip. Simply type Snipping Toll into your search window and snip away.
