    To get a screen capture, press the Print Scrn (could be Prt Scr or Print Screen) key to capture the entire screen. To get a screen capture of just a specific window, set focus to the window of interest, then while holding down an Alt key, press Print Scrn. Next, click inside the Word document, then right-click the mouse and select Paste.

    If you need additional help in screen captures and Word, use a search engine first. Using bing and the search string how to do a screen capture, I was able to find plenty of references. Also from using bing, I found this Word newgroup: http://www.microsoft.com/office/community/en-us/default.mspx?dg=microsoft.public.word.docmanagement&lang=en&cr=US

    You have another way to do that, you can use the Snipping Tool which is new Win 7 feature to capture the screenshot by Windows, Full Screen, Rectangular or free form snip. It can directly save as the JPEG/PNG file and insert to your word document.

  • Switch to the screen you’d like to capture and press PrScrn/Print Screen on the keyboard, open a new Word document and press Ctrl+V simultaneously . Done!
