Take Snapshot of screen with Office 2010
When Microsoft Office 2010 was released, one of its newest and most talked about features was the snapshot of screen ability. Taking Screenshots of screen have always been problematic to attain on PCs, but now users can take a capture of their screen in one simple step within any of the Office 2010 programs.
When you have one of the Office 2010 programs open, all you have to do is click on “Insert” in the top navigation bar.
Look at the options that are displayed. One of the options should be the Snapshot of Screen option. Its icon includes a picture of a little camera. When you click on this button, the program will display a dropdown box. This box will show the active windows that you currently have open on your computer as individual miniature displays. You can click on one to take its snapshot.
Another option is to manually take a screenshot of any area of your current screen. You have the power to do so by clicking on the button labeled, “Screen Clipping,” at the bottom of the window. Now, select the area of your screen that you want to capture by clicking and dragging the mouse to make a box around the desired area.
This snapshot of screen feature is easy-to-use and allows you to take a screenshot that is automatically inserted into your document like clipart. Once it is in your document, you can also save the image to your computer by right clicking on it and then selecting, “Save as Picture.” Take advantage of this tool for your reports and presentations.
