Capturing your Screen - or just a bit of it!
Updated: 5 days ago
One of the most useful things you need to do sometimes on your PC is capture the screen. Most people are familiar with CTRL + ALT + PRT SRN to capture their current open window or simply PRT SRN to capture the whole screen, but what if you need a little more flexibility?
Windows Snipping tool has all the options you need. It can capture the full screen down to small areas or snips.
Simply press the Windows Key + Shift + S (Windows 10) all at the same time on your keyboard, and voila' - the snipping tool will open at the top of the screen with a selection of options available to you.
Simply select the snip option you need:
Rectangular Snip - as the name suggests this 'straight lines' tool will snip around any rectangular / square / straight shapes.
Freeform Snip - free style to capture any areas.
Window Snip - captures your current window.
Full screen Snip - snips it all!
Select the option you want to use and "snip away" .
The image as always is stored to your clipboard ready to be pasted. You can then paste your snips by using Ctrl + V or right click your mouse and chose paste
