It is generally said that in a complex software product like Microsoft Office, Adobe Photoshop, Visual Studio, etc., 80% of people use only 20% of the feature. I realised how true it is yesterday.

I have in my Laptop, MS Office 2003 installed, loaded with all the bells and whistles, including the new OneNote application. Though I have been using OneNote for some time now and find it convenient to put down quick notes, audio clips, etc,  I didn’t know it had a good screen capture function.

In my one of my earlier blog entry, I have written about how I use Zapgrab to mark and capture a portion of the screen. Yesterday, I accidentally pressed “Window Key + S”, the screen flashed and I got a “+” as mouse pointer. I was able to move my mouse, mark a region and get it captured in OneNote instantly. WOW, this was cool. This means, I don’t need to have ZabGrab installed in my machine and I also have a better way to do my job.

If you have more such rarely known jewels of MS Office, please post it in the comment section below.
