Windows Snipping Tool in Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8 (Not in Windows XP)

As an alternative to using our clipboard image saver, you can use the Windows Snipping Tool if you have Windows Vista or Windows 7.

To open the Snipping Tool this:

- Click on the Windows Start orb, then 'All programs', then 'Accessories', then 'Snipping Tool'. 

On Windows 8, press the Windows key on your keyboard to bring up the Start Screen then just type in 'snipping tool' which automatically starts a search and then the 'Snipping tool' app with appear.

You can use this to capture part of the screen, such as just an error message.  This tool is also useful for collecting pictures for your presentations.  For example, you could have a design displayed on screen in a design package or flowcharting package such as Microsoft Visio.  You could cut part of the design from the screen and then save it as a picture file for inserting into your presentations.
