WINDOWS 7 : MY FIRST HANDSHAKE-4 - THE SNIPPING TOOL

1. This one is surely going to be one of the most HIT feature of Windows 7.This feature allows users to capture , edit and share information of web and local pictures (images).Snipping allows you to send the capture image/text to anyone using the option listed on the menu options.This allows user to save the selected portion in any of the formats PNG,GIF,JPEG & MHT.

2. To explain it in a simpler way.What we used to earlier till Vista when we wanted a screen shot.Four steps :

- Press print screen
- Go to Paint Brush
- Do paste
- Save in desired format


3. This is now replaced by one click on the snipping tool...all steps done in one click.No print screen,no opening of paint brush,no paste,no saving.So time saved is time gained.

  1. hi anupam,
    nice to see someone amongst us doing something useful.
    anyway. though not exactly the same feature however a similar feature did exist in office 2007 - OneNote. you can directly take screen clippings from the screen or print the entire page to OneNote instead of the printer.
    You can also take snapshots of a part of the page too.
    anyway good job done ....pl keep us updated and keep up the good job.
