How to Take a Screenshot in MS Word
Open the document in which you want to insert the screenshot:
- Click the Insert tab.
- Click Screenshot. A thumbnail image of every Window you have open is displayed.
- 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:
- 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.
