Thank you for all your suggestions. I'm will try them all to see which works best for me. :D




Which solution did you decide on? I LOVE the Snipping Tool that comes with Windows (Vista and Win7 only, I believe). It's very fast, and has options to Save, Send via Email, and even to write on or highlight an area before saving.


Or... when using Prnt Scrn ... if you want to capture only the Active Window, try holding down Alt before pressing PrntScrn.

I have Vista, can you tell me where I can find the snip tool?



Thank you

I have a program thats automatically installed with Windows. It's called.... Snipping Tool

Try searching in your programs on your computer

I pinned it to my task bar and use it all the time, its great!!


I couldn't live without Snipping tool!!! I use it all the time - from creating graphics, to doing screen shots for my Operations Manual, to sending something to my website designer to explain what the heck I'm talking about. It's an essential tool for me!
