Just Snip It!

In the midst of snipping a picture for my Discovery Education post, I paused and thought I should blog about the snipping tool that comes with Windows 7. If you have this version on your computer, this little tool could be very handy.

According to Microsoft: 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 or tablet pen (or your finger, if you're using a PC with a touchscreen). 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, Ultimate, and Enterprise editions of Windows 7.

Click this to see a video of it in action and then start using it. I use it daily!
