Windows Vista : Snipping Tool - To Capture Screen Shots

Use the Snipping Tool to Capture Screen Shots

We can use Snipping Tool (%SystemRoot%\system32\SnippingTool.exe) to capture a screen shot, or snip, of any object on your screen, and then annotate, save, or share the image. Simply use your mouse (or tablet pen) to capture any of the following types of snips:

Free-form Snip - Draw an irregular line, such as a circle or a triangle, around an object.

Rectangular Snip - Draw a precise line by dragging the cursor around an object to form a rectangle.

Window Snip - Select a window, such as a browser window or dialog box, that you want to capture.

Full-screen Snip - Capture the entire screen when you select this type of snip.
