Zig,

In Vista there is a built in screen capture program called the Snipping Tool.

gazteler - That functionality isn't built into XP. Fortunately there are several good free programs with that functionality - [url=http://www.davescomputertips.com/free_pc_utility_software_system.php:38zojx21]Snapashot and Gadwin[/url:38zojx21].
If this is something that you are going to be doing a lot of I suggest you get [url=http://www.techsmith.com/screen-capture.asp:38zojx21]SnagIt[/url:38zojx21]. It's $50 but well worth the money if you need to take lots of screen captures. But, the casual user will find SnapaShot and Gadwin more than adequate!

oh, a [i:25jtiooq]snipping[/i:25jtiooq] tool.

Right.

For a minute I thought he mistyped sniffing.

I use Gadwin Printscreen myself, very handy.

My favorite tool is [url=http://www.jingproject.com/:2590jxaa]Jing[/url:2590jxaa]. It's Open Source (freeware) and is what I use for all the screen shots in my articles. One of the better features is that you get a free account at [url=http://www.screencast.com:2590jxaa]Screencast.com[/url:2590jxaa] where you can store your shots. Then, you can click the sharing icon and get a fully formed URL that you can use to either link to or embed your shots. Here's an embedded one:

You can also send your shots to Flickr, FTP, or create your own links. I couldn't live without it.

Thanks Ken! That looks better than PrintScreen. I'm going to check it out!

Hmmm..Jing, interesting. Looks like the people behind it are the same ones who produce the excellent Snagit (Techsmith). Jing requires .net Framework 3.0 which could be a put off for some.
