How To Take Screenshots with Microsoft Word 2010 tutorial


22.01.2010

I`m sure that you already heard  about Microsoft`s Word 2010 amazing feature, which is, of course, the ability to take screenshots and paste them directly into you documents, but do you really know how to use it? If, you don`t, then you should fallow this short tutorial, which I can assure you that will definitely improve the quickness of your document creation.

Screenshots in Word 2010:

The first thing you have to do is to select the “ Insert” tab, which can be found on the upper ribbon (next to Home) and then click on “Screenshot” in the Illustration section. Once, you`ve done that you`ll be presented with Available Windows, which shots all your active ones on your desktop, or simply get your own shot by clicking Screen Clipping.

For example: we took a screenshot of the “Howtogeek” website and put the image directly into the document. Another interesting thing is that, if you want to edit the image, you can open the “Picture Tools” tab, in order to do that.

If you want to insert just a part of a picture into the file, then select the “Screen Clipping” button.

So, in order to select the area you wanted, drag the cursor, in such manner to obtain the shot you like and then hold down the left mouse button and highlight the area.

Then again, if you want, you are still able to edit it after you have inserted it into your Word document.

Now, if you really want to be able to use this new feature, which, I repeat, allows you to create documents much faster, all you need to do is download it from here. (Don`t worry about buying or configuring a third party utility to get the “Screenshot” feature because you won`t find anything like that, there.)
