Inserting a Picture Screen Shot

If you’re working on a training manual, presentation, or document that requires a picture of your computer screen, then the Screenshot button on the Insert tab just made your life a lot easier. You use the Screen Clipping tool to drag a selection around the screen area that you want to capture, and then select the picture from the Screenshot gallery. The Screenshot gallery holds multiple screen shots, so you can capture several screens before you insert them into your document. After you insert the screen shot into a document, you can use the tools on the Picture Tools tab to edit and improve it.
