How to use the Snipping Tool in Windows 7 to capture a screen shot

Description: Capturing a screenshot in Windows 7 has never been easier thanks to the Snipping Tool feature.
  1. To open Snipping Tool, click Start » All Programs » Accessories » Snipping Tool


  2. Once opened, click the New button in the Snipping Tool window to create a new screenshot. There are many different ways to capture, but the easiest is Rectangular Snip. This allows the selection to be manipulated in a rectangular fashion around the object to be captured.


  3. Once selected, the cursor will form a set of crosshairs, meaning the selection process is ready to begin. Click and hold in top left corner of the object to be captured, and drag the mouse to the bottom right corner. This will turn the object from opaque, to solid, giving a visual confirmation that it was successfully selected.

  4. When the mouse is released, a window containing a preview of the captured image will appear, providing the option to either re-capture the image or save it to the computer.

    Save image

  5. To save the image, click the Disk icon in the top left corner.
