Many times when you technical documents or just presentation you will find useful wanting to capture some portions from the screen. Earlier in November 2004 I had written about using OneNote 2003 to do it and in October 2004 I had posted about using a freeware Zabgrab to it.
Though OneNote (esp. OneNote 2007) will work with Windows Vista, Zabgrab doesn’t. So in my laptop with OneNote 2007 I don’t have a problem, but when I am using a Vista machine without what to do?. Apple Mac 10.x have an easy to use Screen grab tool in-built in the system menu.
The good news is Windows Vista bundles (out of box) a great screen capture tool called “Snipping Tool”. The tool helps you to Capture a portion of your screen so you can save, annotate, or share the image.
You can find the Snipping Tool either via Start > Accessories > Snipping Tool or by simply typing Snip into any Search window. But it is easy to create a shortcut for it by using the path %SystemRoot%\system32\SnippingTool.exe. This path should work in all Windows Vista (32 bit) editions. It also has rudimentary painting (pen) tool. The tool allows you to copy the URL associated with a screen area and you can control this in your application through this API
