Ziptech’s Operations Director Radwan Khader provides Top Tips for Windows users. This month Rad looks at how to use The Snipping Tool
This is a really useful tool available to anyone who has Windows 7 or later. It allows you to take a shot of any section of your screen and save it as an image or instantly share it by email.
To open it, type “snipping tool” in the search box.
You can take a new snip by drawing a shape around the area you wish to include, dragging the cursor to form a rectangle. You can choose a section or capture the entire screen.
To do this tap or click the arrow next to the New button, choose the kind of snip you want, then pick the area you want to capture. The snip is automatically copied to the Snipping Tool window.
Once you have captured it, you can share your snip by clicking the arrow next to the Send button. You can choose whether you’d like to send the snip in the body of your email or as an attachment.
If you want to draw attention to a particular area in the snip, you can use the pen to circle, cross out, underline or add a note. If you love the app as much as we do, you’ll want to add it as a shortcut.
