Using the Windows 10 Snipping Tool


Taking screen shots is a great way to save pictures of anything you are looking at on your workstation as well as providing a visual to someone you are trying to describe an issue to. Many chose to use the Print Screen button, but this only takes a full screen picture instead of a specific window. Did you know Windows 10 has a great tool you can use instead? It’s called Snipping Tool!

To Use:

  1. Click on the Windows Start button
  2. Type the name “Snipping Tool” and select it from the program list
  3. Click NEW and then click and drag your mouse over the area of your screen you want to capture.
  4. Once taken, simply click File to find options to Save or Send As Email to someone.
