How to Use Microsoft Word’s Built-In Screenshot Tool

Take screenshots is quite easy; this is a feature built into most operating systems. If you're already working on a Word document and want to add a screenshot to it, you can save yourself a few clicks using Word's built-in screen capture tool.

In an open document, switch to the "Insert" tab on the Word ribbon.

Then click on the "Screen Capture" button.

You will be greeted with a thumbnail of each window you have opened at the moment.

You can click on any of the thumbnails to immediately insert a screenshot of that window into your document. You can then position this image as you would any other illustration.

If you want to capture a specific area on the screen instead of an active window, click the "Screen Clipping" command instead of a thumbnail in the Capture drop-down menu 39; screen.

Your entire screen will darken and you can draw a rectangle on the part you want to capture.

As soon as you select the area, Word immediately adds the image to your document.
