Still using Print Screen for taking screenshots in Vista ? ;)

Why not use Snipping Tool :D

 

In your Vista Desktop Go to Start Menu and type snipping in the Search box

Click on the Snipping Tool shown in the results and you get the Snipping Tool app :)

Now you could choose the options in the drop down menu of New to capture

It doesnt get over here :) . You could save your file in Jpeg/PNG/Bitmap and send it as email or as an attachment in your email

And there is also option to write upon the image using the Pen tool and its highly customizable :D

I never knew this tool was included in Vista until I did a google search !

 

The only thing I think I can add to Snipping Tool is New Screenshot by delay. For example, I can have screenshot to be taken after 5 or 10 seconds :)

Enjoy snipping ! :D

This tool is also part of the (free) Tablet PC Experience Pack (which also comes with some other handy freeware). The XP version is only avaialble for Windows XP Tablet PC though.
