How to use the Windows Vista Snipping Tool to capture a menu

I use the snipping tool in Windows Vista all the time. If you’ve ever wondered how to capture a menu using this tool, here’s how you do it (straight from the help file for the snipping tool btw)

Can I capture a snip of a menu, such as a shortcut menu or the Start menu?

Yes. Here's how to do it:

  1. Open the snipping tool

  2. Press ESC, and then open the menu that you want to capture.


  4. Select the type of snip you want, and then capture the menu.

As an example, here is a screenshotI wanted from the IE menu so I could show how to check to ensure the IE Safety Filter is on.
