Using Windows Vista Snipping tool (Video)

The Admin has covered the Vista Snipping tool recently but, you know what they say about a picture being worth a thousand words... How about a video? How many words is that worth?

But here is the second in a series of Video how-to's By Dan Morrill, on special assignment to Ask the Admin. If you missed Dan's first one on Wednesday, on how to use Word 2007 as a blog editor, then here it is.

Windows Vista comes with a number of handy tools, the best one is the windows vista snipping tool. This tool allows you to capture a JPG image from whatever is on the screen, and save it off for use later. This is very handy when you need a logo from a site, that is using a text based logo with no images that you can download and save.

This program can be found under start, all programs, accessories and can really make your day easier when you need to capture an image off the screen. This completely replaces the alt+print screen or function+print screen and is very cool.
