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

MS Word has a built-in screenshot tool that you may not be aware of.

How to Take a Screenshot in MS Word

Open the document in which you want to insert the screenshot:

  1. Click the Insert tab.
  2. Click Screenshot. A thumbnail image of every Window you have open is displayed.
  3. Click one of the thumbnails to take a screenshot. It is automatically inserted into your Microsoft Word document.

You can also take an area of an Active window:

  1. Click Screen Clipping.

The screen goes dim, and you can draw a rectangular shape over the part you want to capture.

After you select the area to be screen clipped, Microsoft Word automatically inserts the image in you file.
