    Default Take quick screen-shots in Vista

    Vista has a handy utility - Snip that is a flexible app to take screen shots. But, this feature is not enabled by default always.

    Snip is a feature under Tablet PC Optional Components. So one needs to enable this.

    This can be done by:

    Start -> Run -> optionalfeatures.exe

    In the window: scroll down, you will see Tablet PC Optional Components. Check the box -> OK.


    Control Panel -> Programs -> Un-install a Program -> on the left you will see 'Turn Windows Features On or Off'

    Click on it, scroll down, you will see Tablet PC Optional Components. Check the box -> OK

    Also, you start the application and put it in Standby mode. To auto-initiate the app for taking screen-shots:


    Forgot to mention, once Tablet PC Optional Components are enabled you can find Snip under -Start Menu -> All Programs -> Accessories.

    Yeah, Snip sure is one handy tool Vista introduced,

    BT there is also a Snip IT addon for IE, from Microsoft, which lets you send text selected in Internet Explorer as e-mail. JFYI.
