You can use the Snipping Tool to capture a screen shot, or snip, of any object on your screen, and then annotate, save, or share the image. Snipping Tool comes with Windows Vista and Windows 7.
Open Snipping Tool by clicking the Start button > All Programs > Accessories > Snipping Tool, or press the Windows Key, then type Snip.
Snipping Tool cannot do snips of itself so, you’ll have to use a separate screen capture program to get screen shots of Snipping Tool.
