PROBLEM: wasting time explaining (to someone) what you see on your screen.
SOLUTION: take a screen-shot of it and email it to them.
Word, Excel, PowerPoint & Outlook 2010, 2013 & 2016 – Inserting a screen shot
To quickly insert a screenshot of an active window:
- Click the Insert tab.
- Click Screenshot. A gallery will display a screenshot of each of the windows you currently have open.
- Click the screenshot you require. The image will be inserted into your document.
Note: if you require a selected area of an active window, minimise all other windows and then for step 3 select Screen Clipping. The active application will minimise and the screen will become opaque. Click and drag over the area you want to capture.
I cover this feature in my ‘Mastering Microsoft Word‘ course, along with inserting and working with images and diagrams.
