Snipping Tool

11 Jun

Snipping Tool captures a screen shot of anything on your desktop, like a picture or a section of webpage. Snip a whole window, a rectangular section of the screen, or draw a freehand outline with your mouse. Then you can annotate, save, or e-mail the image using buttons right in the Snipping Tool window. Snipping Tool is available only in the Home Premium, Professional, and Ultimate editions of Windows 7 and Windows 8.

Use Snipping Tool to capture screen shots

To open Snipping Tool

  • Open Snipping Tool by swiping in from the right edge of the screen, clicking Search, entering Snipping Tool in the search box, and then clicking Snipping Tool.

You can capture the following types of snips:

  • Free-form Snip.  Draw any shape around an object with your finger, mouse, or tablet pen.

  • Rectangular Snip. Drag the cursor around an object to form a rectangle.

  • Window Snip.  Choose a window—like a browser window or a dialog box.

  • Full-screen Snip.  Capture the entire screen.

Capture a snip

In Snipping Tool, click the arrow next to the New button, choose the kind of snip you want, and then pick the area of your screen that you want to capture. The snip is automatically copied to the Snipping Tool window.

Capture a snip of a menu

  1. After you open Snipping Tool, open the menu that you want a picture of.

  2. Press Ctrl+PrtScn.

  3. Click the arrow next to the New button, choose the kind of snip you want, and then pick the area of the screen that you want to capture.

Save a snip

  1. After you capture a snip, Click the Save Snip button.

  2. In the Save As dialog box, enter a file name, location, and file type, and then click Save.

Remove the URL

When you capture a snip from a browser window and save it as an HTML file, the URL appears below the snip. To prevent the URL from showing up:

  1. Click Tools, and then click Options.

  2. In the Snipping Tools Options dialog box, clear the Include URL below snips (HTML only) check box, and then click OK.

Share a snip

After you capture a snip, click the arrow next to the Send Snip button, and then choose whether you’d like to send the snip in the body of your email or as an attachment.
