Screenshots And Screen Clippings

Have you ever wanted to add a visual from your screen to a document in order to explain or clarify a concept? Screenshots and screen clippings enable you to create an image of all, or a specific area, of your screen and insert it into your document.


Benefits: This feature makes it easy to add pictures to Word or PowerPoint documents without having to switch to a third-party application.

How To: Go to the Insert tab and click on the Screenshots icon. This opens a popup window which enables you to select the area of your screen that you want in your picture. Then the software automatically adds the screenshot or clipping to the document you're working on.

Compatibility: Available in Word and PowerPoint 2013.
