Open Snipping Tool by clicking the Start button , clicking All Programs, clicking Accessories, and then clicking Snipping Tool.
Click the arrow next to the New button, select a snip type from the menu, and then use your mouse or tablet pen to capture a snip.
- Press Command-Shift-4. A cross-hair cursor will appear and you can click and drag to select the area you wish to capture. When you release the mouse button, the screen shot will be automatically saved as a PNG file on your desktop. (The file is saved as PDF in Mac OS 10.3 and earlier.)
- Attach the file you just created and saved to your desktop to an email.
- While the menu button is held down, press the power/lock button (the switch on the top edge of the device).
- Your screen will flash white for a second and make a camera shutter noise (if you have the volume turned up) to indicate that the screen shot has been taken.
- The screen shots you take are automatically saved in the default Photos app under an album called "Saved Photos" or "Camera Roll" depending on your device.
- Email the photo by Clicking the menu icon (a rectangle with an arrow coming out of it, in the bottom left corner of the screen).
