Today this post will feature a new inbuilt feature in Windows 7 with which you can easily capture screen shots on computer without using ‘Print Screen’ or any type of software.
No doubt we have “Print Screen” or “Prt Scr” key already on our keyboard but this key does not support some computers with wireless keyboard. But if you have to get many screen shots and then cut the selected area in MS Paint. So to avoid print screen, paste it in MS Paint and then remove all unwanted area, Windows introduced a new feature, Snipping Tool.
How To Use Snipping Tool.
Using Snipping Tool is easy. Start Run or press ‘Windows + R’ and type ‘SnippingTool’ and Enter.
A new window with title “Snipping Tool” will open. Now drag the selected area you want snip. You have captured the screen shot and you can now save it. E.g. I have capture the heading of Top Furtive.
After the screen shot you will be displayed with another window where you can edit the screen shot. And after editing, Snipping Tool also has the feature to save the picture in other formats such as PNG, JPEG, GIF and HTML.
Clicking on new will display four options as below:
- Free-form Snip: You can snip the area in any irregular shape.
- Rectangular Snip: You can snip the area in rectangular shape.
- Window Snip: You can snip the whole window.
- Full-screen Snip: You can snip full screen and this is similar to that of using ‘Print Screen’ or ‘Prt Scr’.
