I'm basically a Mac user, used to taking quick, variable sized snapshots of

graphics on the screen. How can I do this on a pc, using Microsoft software?

I need to get small visuals of menu bars, etc. to prepare instruction manuals

for my students.

    • You can use PrintScreen to copy the entire screen to the Clipboard (whence

      you can paste it into any application) and Alt+PrintScreen to capture the

      active window (which can be a dialog). It's generally preferable to paste

      these into a graphics app and save them as GIFs rather than to paste

      directly into Word (you can also use the graphics app to crop and embellish

      the image). For screen captures more versatile than those you can get with

      PrintScreen, you might want to get the very affordable SnagIt program from

      TechSmith (www.techsmith.com).
