The easiest way to take a screenshot in Windows 7,8 or 8.1 is to use the Snipping Tool.

If there’s one Windows feature that I totally love then it’s the Snipping Tool. You can take a screenshot of your desktop in less than 3 seconds.

The Snipping Tool can either be found in C:\Windows\system32\SnippingTool.exe or open it via Start Menu/All Programs/Accessories.

Windows 7/8: Open the Snipping Tool, then click on “New”. The area behind the snipping tool will be greyed out and you can now draw a rectangle to make your screenshot. The rectangle defines the size of your screenshot. Draw a large one if you want to take a screenshot of the whole desktop.

If you need it regularly, you should pin it to the taskbar!

Of course you can also simply press “PrintScreen” and then paste the screenshot into Paint or Photoshop, but the Snipping tool is so much faster. It also allows you to highlight things and save the image as a JPG file.
