snipping tool is a another cool feature of windows 7, it is the replacement to the traditional ctrl+printscreen to capture our desktop screen. what's new in here is that you can now capture just a piece of the screen of a snip instead of the whole thing. you can also use the free form feature of it like a circle,rectangle or just a portion of a window.after capturing the deired look its now ready to save or shared with added annotations. very cool and convenient.

Hello. Yes snipping tool is readily available in windows 7. I love it. But it's not new anymore. Even if one is using windows xp, linux or any other OS out there, there are wide range of software that works just like the windows 7 snipping tool. Some of them are free and can be downloaded in the net. Happy snipping to you. :) shadow41

Hi. yeah that's true,but it still good to have it there instead of getting a program to run the feature. some programs out there have been altered for not so good reasons. but anyway thanks for the rep. have a nice day!

That's nice. Im still using the old Print Screen then edit on Paint or some similar software. I dont use Windows 7. Im quite fine with my old one actually.^_^ It seems that Windows 7 has more exciting features as compared to the older ones. Well, as long as our Operating System still does the work and not give us headaches in anyway, then it's fine, right? Though it can be good to upgrade our systems, but changes really just have to be adjusted to. Have fun using your nifty Windows 7 tools.

If I am right, the snipping tool has been introduced in Vista and Windows XP tablet PC edition 2005 already. I have never used Windows 7 so I do not know how the tool has been upgraded to make it more useful added more features to it. In Vista we can use it for capturing any part of the screen as well as highlighting any area after capturing which I think one of the coolest feature of it. Moreover it goes straight to the save file tool options which is less time consuming than the traditional method of pasting and saving in a photo editing software or Painbrush.
