Screenshots with Microsoft Word

I like to use Microsoft Word for much of the documentation that I write.  I also like to include screenshots in my documents when they can be more effective than words.  I am embarrassed to admit that I did not know until recently that Word has built-in screenshot capability.  There's no need to bring third party screenshot software into the mix!

Next time you need to add a screenshot to a Word document, simply select the Insert tab then click Screenshot.  You'll have the option to make a screenshot of any window that you have open or to make a custom screen clipping on your own.  Once you have the screenshot inserted into your document, the Format menu will appear in the toolbar.  You can change the color and shape and add some artistic effects to enhance the screenshot.

This may be the greatest thing ever. I really wish I had known about this sooner. Thanks, Andrew!
