Snippingtool.exe (Windows) ... who knows about it? It makes it really easy to get a pic of part of the screen ... start it, outline the region with the mouse and the snippet is in the clipboard!

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.
