It's the cat's pajamas ... a pic of a screen rectangle in the clipboard in about 5 seconds. That beats the heck out of my old way:

[Alt]PrintScreen ... mspaint ... paste ... select ... crop ... select all ... copy ... and sometime later, "net stop stisvc"

Yup, it's actually been around since Win7. I didn't find out about it until maybe a year of using 7, and I'm still telling people about it. Heh Two more features would be great: add text and print.

It's been around since Windows Vista, as I use it in Vista on a daily basis. One of those hidden gems.
Ah, I wasn't aware of that, and apparently neither are the places I've seen mention it. Heh I just Googled "snipping tool vista" and found it wasn't in all editions, and not necessarily enabled by default in the editions that did have it.
