Have you ever wanted to capture an entire screen or a portion of a screen to insert into something you were working on or to share the information with someone?  The "snipping tool" is by far the easiest and most useful tool for this task.  You can capture any part of the screen, and if the screen does not have all you want to capture simply hold the control key down and use the scroll button on your mouse to zoom in and out until you get what you want.  The "snipping tool" comes with windows and 7 and 8 and can be found by clicking on start button, going to all programs, then to accessories and there is the "snipping tool."  I pin it to my task bar so it is there whenever I need it.  Once you "snip" what you want you can save it as a jpg file or copy it an insert it into an email or a document you are working with.

Below is an example of how I used the "snipping tool" and captured a portion of the GENCOM blog, saved it as a jpeg file, and inserted it again into this blog.
