When you want to take a screenshot of a portion of your screen rather than the entire screen, Snip & Sketch makes selective screenshotting very easy. These steps will guide you through the grab and save process:

1.        Press the Windows key + Shift + S at the same time. Your laptop screen fades to a white overlay and your cursor changes from a pointed to a crosshair cursor.

2.        Select the part of your screen that you wish to grab. The Snippet will vanish from your screen and copy onto your computer’s clipboard.

3.        Now, open an image editing program.

4.        Open a new image and tap key combination [Ctrl+V] to paste the screenshot.

5.        Save the screenshot as a JPG or PNG file and save it into an easily accessible folder.


Snagit can also be used for screenshotting. From capturing screenshots to resizing and editing them, Snagit can also support video grabbing that can record a scrolling screen. The following steps will guarantee your screen grabbing with efficiency.

1.        Open the Snagit application once downloaded.

2.        Press the red circle button at the top of your screen to access the screenshot camera.

3.        Select camera icon for a screenshotted image or the recorder icon for a screenshotted video.

4.        Select the portion of the screen you desire to snap.

5.        Your desktop image will appear at the Snagit application. You can edit, resize, and copy the clipped image from there.
