Snip snip snip

Remember the screen capture tools I had asked you folks about? Check out the Snipping tool that ships with Vista. It's a cute little tool in All Programs->Accessories that lets you capture any portion of the screen and then gives handy tools like markers and highlighters to annotate your screenshot. You can directly mail the snapshot to someone or save it on disk. Me like it! 🙂 What do you think?

  1. Good find, very handy little tool (though I still love CropperCapture, and OneNote 2007’s built in capture tool is nice as well).

  2. Oh yes – I loved the One Note cutting tool as well!

    I love this tool. Unfortunately it worked in the beginning very good, now I installed more and more software?updates? it works only once and crashes. After PC reboot it works again 1 time. This happens on 2 notebooks and 1 PC 🙁

  4. Yikes! Could you mail me on anutthar at microsoft dot com with a snapshot of the list of the new s/w that you installed? I’ll make sure we get you a workaround for the tool.
