[Windows Vista] Have you found the snipper yet?

If you use Windows Vista OS, this tip may come handy for you as there is a hidden snipper tool available in Vista. All you need is to 'uncover' it.

Goto Start -> Control Panel -> Programs
Click on "Turn Windows Features on or off"
Scroll down to "Table PC Optional Components" and check it if unchecked.

Now, hit the start menu and type in "snip" to find and run the snipping tool.

You can use Snipping Tool to capture a screen shot, or snip, of any object on your screen, and then annotate, save, or share the image. Simply use a mouse or tablet pen to capture any of the following types of snips:
• Free-form Snip. Draw an irregular line, such as a circle or a triangle, around an object.
• Rectangular Snip. Draw a precise line by dragging the cursor around an object to form a rectangle.
• Window Snip. Select a window, such as a browser window or dialog box, that you want to capture.
• Full-screen Snip. Capture the entire screen when you select this type of snip.

After you capture a snip, it's automatically copied to the mark-up window, where you can annotate, save, or share the snip.
