  • In the Introduction, you will learn how to manage your time with Microsoft Outlook, use Microsoft OneNote 2010, and take screenshots.
  • The third chapter in the Introduction covers taking screenshots.
  • As you work through this textbook, if you have difficulty or encounter an error message, you can take a screenshot and send it to your instructor. After reviewing the screenshot, your instructor can then help you to learn what went wrong or explain how to fix the error. Your instructor may also want you to take a screenshot to confirm that you have completed some of the skills or assessments in this textbook. You can capture a screenshot of the entire desktop by using the Print Screen key. The Print Screen key copies the screenshot to the Clipboard. A temporary storage area, the Clipboard holds the screen image so that you can paste it into a file. For example, you could paste it into a WordPad document.
  • In this chapter, you capture an image of your entire desktop and paste it in a WordPad document. You also capture an image of the Taskbar on your desktop and add it to your study notes in OneNote.
  • You can use the Print Screen key to take a screenshot of your entire screen, such as the desktop, including the Taskbar and all open windows. This key is located at the top-right area of your keyboard. When you press the Print Screen key, the image of your current screen is copied to a temporary storage area called the Clipboard. You can then paste the screenshot into a document.
  • On a laptop computer, you often need to press the Fn Key while you press the Print Screen key. The Windows Clipboard will store only the most recent image captured.
  • Landscape orientation makes the width of the page longer than the height and is a better fit for most screenshots. You have several options for sharing a screenshot. You can print it and share the hard copy. In addition, you can save the document you pasted it into and then send it as an email attachment.
  • The Paint program is another Windows 7 utility and you will find it in the Accessories folder in the Start menu. You can use the tools in the Paint program to add callouts, erase or crop part of the screenshot, rotate the screenshot, and resize the screenshot. You can also add and edit the screenshot colors. You can choose to save the screenshot from within Paint as a JPG, PNG, BMP, or TIF file.
  • If you want to capture only a portion of the screen, instead of the entire desktop, you can use the Snipping Tool. Snipping Tool is a Windows 7 utility.
  • After you take a screenshot with the Snipping Tool, you can copy it to the Clipboard and then paste it into a document. You can also save the file and insert it into a document or send it as an email attachment.
  • If you want to capture the entire screen, simply click in one corner and drag to the corner diagonal to it. If you are not happy with the capture, click the New button to start over. As an alternative to copying and pasting the screenshot, you can save the screenshot and then insert it in a document. You do not need to save the snipped image to WordPad before saving it to OneNote.
  • If you save your screenshot, you will be able to use it again later. You can also annotate screenshots in the Snipping Tool by clicking the Pen button on the toolbar and then writing on or around the screenshot. If you make a mistake, click the Eraser button and erase your mistake.
