Where to Find the Snipping Tool in Windows 7
Windows 7 offers numerous ways to get to the Snipping Tool. You can go to the Start Menu, choose Accessories and then click Snipping Tool.
A second way is to type the word "snipping" in the Start Menu search box and click Snipping Tool.
Alternatively, you can run its executable SnippingTool.exe found in the "C:\Windows\System32" folder.
Where to Find the Snipping Tool in Windows 8 & Windows 8.1
In Windows 8, right click on the Start screen and click All apps. This opens the Apps view.
In Windows 8.1 move the cursor or your finger (if you are using a touch display) to the bottom left of the Start screen. An arrow pointing downwards is displayed. Click or tap on it, to open the Apps view.
Then, go to Windows Accessories and you will find the Snipping Tool shortcut.
Alternately, you can type the word snip and the Start screen displays the appropriate results.
The window of the Snipping Tool application looks similar to the screenshot below.
It looks almost identical to the Windows 7 version. Its features are the same and only a few minor settings (e.g. the default ink color) are different in Windows 8 or Windows 8.1 than in Windows 7.
That's why the remainder of this tutorial will be done using the version existing in Windows 7.
Snipping Tool's Main Interface
The Snipping Tool window has three important buttons: New, Cancel and Options.
The New button allows you to select the type of screenshot that you want to take and then take a screenshot. The Cancel button allows you to cancel the current action. The Options button allows you to customize different aspects of the application.
How to Take a Custom Screenshot
There are four types of captures available when pressing the New button:
To share an example, let's see how to capture a part of your Desktop using Free-form Snip. First of all select the Free-form Snip from the drop down menu and then choose the area that you want to cut.
Select the area that interests you by clicking and dragging your cursor. As you drag, the selected area is surrounded by a red border, if you are using the default settings.
When you release the mouse button, the captured area is automatically copied to the mark-up window, where you can annotate, save or share the screenshot.
How to Edit a Screenshot
This editing window offers useful tools for editing the capture you took. For example, if you are not satisfied with the quality of the picture you can always make a new one using New Snip button. Before saving your screenshot, you can use the Pen and Highlighter tools to add markup to the capture. The Eraser tool removes the marks made with the Pen and the Highlighter.
To save the screenshot, press the Save Snip button, select the location where you want it stored, type the file's name and choose the file type: PNG, GIF, JPEG or HTML. The, press Save.
You may email a screenshot, by using the Send Snip button on the toolbar. It gives you two options: E-mail Recipient and E-mail Recipient (as attachment). To use this button successfully, you need to have an email client installed on your computer. A strange thing we noticed is that the Snipping Tool doesn't work with modern apps from the Windows Store. It is capable of sending your screenshots via email only if you are using desktop email clients like Outlook or Thunderbird.
How to Customize the Snipping Tool
When you start the Snipping Tool, you can click or tap the Options button to set your preferences on how the program should work.
An Options entry is also found in the Tools menu, when editing the screenshots you take.
The available options are in two sections: Application and Selections groups.
The Application section has a set of checkboxes that enable you to make the following changes:
The second section, named Selection Options, allows you to make a few settings regarding the color palette :
