    That’s a very handy tip. I never noticed it before. thanks.


  2. 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


    • Latif Jxi,
      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.
