With just a few clicks, you can insert a screenshot into Microsoft Word, Excel, or Powerpoint from inside the application.
All you need to do is open one of those applications and click Insert, Screenshot.
Then click one of the Available Windows, which consists of all your open windows. The window you choose will be inserted into your file.
This feature makes auditing or writing instructions a lot faster.

That’s a very handy tip. I never noticed it before. thanks.
Just learned it myself, so that’s why I passed it on. I’ve used it many times already. Thanks for commenting.
I also learn something today. Instead of those you mention, I have “Snipping Tool” for the same purpose. I thought IT Dept pre-install this small thing.
Then i google…. hey, maybe all Windows users have it. find it. http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/products/features/snipping-tool
Yes, everyone has the Snipping Tool (Windows XP and up, I believe).
The difference between that and what I demonstrated above is that you don’t have to SNIP your screen first; you just insert a snapshot of one of your open windows.
