When in Doubt, Use the Snipping Tool


Quick post for this one, but it can be a lifesaver! If you have Windows 7 or later, you have a program called “Snipping Tool” on your computer. Didn’t know that? Go look! Go on, I’ll wait.

Snipping tool takes a snapshot of part (or all) of your screen, and can be saved as a .jpeg image. This tool has a plethora of uses, and most of them are obvious, but here are a few to get you thinking:

  • That annoying computer bug you don’t know how to fix. If your computer is misbehaving, take a snip of the error box, so your tech person can help you out.
  • Sharing your knowledge with another. Teach that nice lady from church how to use a new program or website. Take a snip, draw in a few arrows using the drawing tool, and you’re good to go (and so is she!).
  • Impromptu image. For one reason or another, maybe you can’t save an image, or a series of images. Use the snipping tool to take a screenshot of it!
  • To learn more about the snipping tool, visit this handy link.
