Sometimes the easiest way to make a copy of something is to take a snapshot of your screen – this is what Snipping Tool does. Use it to save and share teaching resources and ideas. Students can also use the Snipping tool to submit assignments electronically to you.
Capture all or part of your PC screen, add notes, save the snip, or email it from the Snipping Tool window.
