Easy to Take Screenshots

Have you ever had the need to take a screenshot or a “screen grab”? Maybe you need to show the ITS Helpdesk an error you’re getting on your computer. Or maybe a screenshot is more print-friendly than a webpage.

Microsoft Snipping Tool

Microsoft Snipping tool is already installed on your computer and it’s easy to use. You can mark up the screenshot using the pen and highlighter tools. Here’s a 2:45 video that shows the Snipping tool in action.MS snipping tool


For additional functionality, I like to use TechSmith’s Jing. Check out a quick video demo on their homepage. It is free and you can also record videos up to 5 minutes in length. Jing also allows you to use a text box, frame, arrows to draw attention, and more colors.

 If you need help taking a screenshot, please contact me.
