Use the Snipping Tool to Capture Screenshots

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.
